The small town Colorado girl who’s obsessed with home and everything that entails! I’m a creative, a decorator, a day dreamer, a huge fan of scones, and I’m passionate about loving where I live and making a home.
Happy Friday! I’m so excited to be sharing a new (to me) chalk based/ no-prep paint! When Maison Blanche Paint Company contacted me about trying out their paint and finishing products, I was all for it. Paint is one of the quickest and easiest ways to instantly update and I couldn’t wait to give their paint a try. And the best part? I was challenged to use one of their specific colors, Navy.
I’m definitely a neutral girl, but if there were ever two colors that I’m generally always drawn to, they’re red and navy. And this navy? Well it’s just right!
Say hello to my new navy blue sideboard…
Here’s what I started with, a mellow yellow. I actually took it out of one of the closets at the fixer upper…
I couldn’t wait to get started…
Once I brought it inside, I wiped it down to remove any dirt, then gave it the first coat…
After the first coat dried, I added the second coat, which basically provided full coverage…
Other than touching up a few little spots, the sideboard was ready to dry completely. With the paint dry, I applied a coat of Maison Blanche’s clear antiquing wax.
It really darkened the paint…
With everything waxed, it was ready to take pictures!
I couldn’t help but think it looked like the perfect piece for books, so I created a little reading corner, complete with plenty of reading material. 😀
I’m absolutely digging the color of this navy. It’s deep, dark and rich.
And not only do I love the color on this little sideboard, but I love its size and possibilities…
I already have a new home picked out, and it’s definitely going to help out with some organizing… That right there, is called a double bonus.
