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.

Farmhouse Jewelry Hooks

When I purchased this solid oak wall hook bar I totally envisioned it as a jewelry or scarf storage and display piece. I had a customer wanting an accordion type wall hook variety but when I sent her this one she was "hooked" :)

After it was cleaned well, 3 coats of Fusion Mineral Paint raw silk. Once all coats were dry it was lightly sponge sanded and distressed for a farmhouse feel.

For a seamless look, I also spray painted 2 wall screw heads white with metal paint then painted the raw silk.

It will look lovely in her home and be the perfect spot to coral all her necklaces in style!
