Navy Sideboard / Sofa Table

I loved the bones of this Sklar Pepplar sideboard / sofa table and knew it would look fabulous in a classic color to update the worn original stained finish.

As with all my projects, the first step is to scrub the piece well with warm soapy water, rinse and dry well. The top of the bottom shelf was lightly power sanded to smooth the finish then wiped well to remove and sanding dust.
I imagined it in a deep rich navy and ordered classic navy from a new paint line called Jolie Paint.

Look at the lovely packaging they send it in! See this sweet jewelry box and this fun wooden accent chair in malachite. And this stained and painted wood chair in verdigris. Boat are the small tester sizes in the box.

Here is the beautiful classic navy and their signature brush. I LOVE the brush; the construction is so well made and the handle fits my hand perfectly. The natural bristles apply the paint beautifully.

CUREiously Pink strikes again Jewelry box #2

I love painting jewelry boxes as they are the perfect canvas to apply fun bold colors which give the boring old original finishes new life. This sweet wood jewelry box with the heart cut out on the hinged top said pink!

But light or dark pink? Dark pink won

Fusion Mineral Paint released a limited paint in October called CUREiously pink. It is such a fun bold color. See another jewelry box I painted for a local cancer fund raiser as well as a recipe box with all proceeds going to Canada Cancer Society.

Two coats were applied to a clean surface and once dry, the jewelry box was sponge sanded smooth and distressed on the edges.

The etched glass in the top was given my favorite / signature faux mercury treatment using looking glass spray from Krylon.

To add a wee bit of shimmer, I applied Miss Mustard Seed's NEW zinc wax. It worked perfectly with the faux mercury glass and in certain lighting, gave the luscious pink a purplish shade and silver shimmer in others.
