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.

Liberty Blue Mens Valet


Another solid wood mens valet has been made over giving it new life and personality.


The color I chose for this mens valet organizer I chose Fusion Mineral Paint's liberty blue. I just used it on this adorable MCM record cabinet. It is a rich deep blue that will pop with the silver hardware.

To paint it I took it all apart, cleaned the wood surfaces well, polished the hardware and applied 2 coats of liberty blue. Once dry it was all sanded smooth with distressing on the edges.

This vintage MCM style is universally appealing and the perfect way to get your fellow organized. Check out other valets I have reloved in grey, black and navy and just recently chocolate.


Everything can be corralled in one place at the end of the day, rings, watches, glasses, cell phone, wallet, change or whatever  might be needing a spot to rest till needed again.
