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…

Jolie's Malachite Accent Chair

When I saw this cute solid wood chair I knew it would be perfect in a fun color as an accent chair.

As always, a good scrubbing was in order to get off all the dried on food and fingerprints.

I knew the perfect color; malachite from a new paint line I was so excited to try called Jolie Paint

Just look at the fabulous packaging Jolie Paint comes in.

See navy used on this sweet sofa table and verdigris used on this adorable chair and malachite on this gorgeous jewelry box.

I loved the consistency of this paint and how smooth it went on. Two coats covered perfectly. And even after 2 coats on this chair and painting this sweet jewelry box (blog post coming soon) in the same color, the tester pot still has paint enough to do another project!!

On this chair I tried their suggestion of random brush stroke application. You can see it in the above photo. It gives the chair some added dimension. 


On the second coat I did my usual smooth brush strokes then lightly sanded all to smooth a bit and distress the edges for a worn aged feel.

To seal it I used Jolie's clear wax. It too went on easily and has no smell which is nice.

To add just a bit more age I brushed some Fusion's black wax in the nooks and crannies, perfect!! 

This solid wood chair will add a fun punch of color to any room.
