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…

Walnut Stained and Verdigris Painted Wooden Chair


Before and after chair makeover :)


This sweet wooden chair had a wobble. Luckily it was able to be disassembled to start all over. 


That also made it perfect to stain part and paint part for a fun two tone color scheme.

A good scrub was the first step to remove any thing like fingerprints, dried food etc that would affect paint adherence.



The color portion would come from my new box of Jolie Paint products.

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



I chose Jolie Paint in verdigris; a soft robin's egg blue.


After the first coat of paint went on there some areas on the bow back that needed further sanding. Easy enough to do and repaint. Two coats were the perfect coverage.

AS you can see above it is only a tester size of this color but even after 2 coats on this chair, there is half a tester pot left!!



The wood seat was power sanded down to bare wood.



Then General Finishes antique walnut gel stain was applied. After it dried well for a few days, 3 coats of General Finishes high performance top coat in flat finish with my angled Zibra brush went on with overnight drying between coats.




To seal the pretty paint, Jolie Paint's clear wax wax hand rubbed on. 



Then it was time to reassemble the chair adding counter sunk screws into the legs thru the seat frame for additional support along with fresh glue. The seat back was screwed in place


 and wahlaaaa
