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.

The top has a leather inset which covered easily with this paint. And this beauty has caster…

Little Vintage Stool

This sweet little vintage stool sat forlornly on the thrift store shelf

but even thru the layers of paint; a few of them not applied so well with drips and haphazard application. I knew it could really shine again.

The poor legs were wobbly and uneven and seemed to be held in place with a rubbery glue.

I cut the glue off and dug around the edges eventually getting them out. 

The holes were cleaned out well and the legs and seat power sanded on all sides.

The legs were glued with wood glue and once set in correct position I set the solid wood magazine rack I was working on at the same time on top to keep the whole piece drying level.

Now that is was dry I added Fusion ageing wax  to enhance the wood edges revealed with the sanding and add to the aged look.

Isn't it sweet?
