This sweet, little (and I mean little) table was in process. By someone who does not work at fivethirty home.
We finished the job with two coats of Jolie Dove Gray and she is ready for a new home!
The combo of Jolie’s beautiful sage green paint and our bone knobs outlined in gold is the perfect pair for this 7 drawer, skinny chest! I get excited when I see original wood knobs because I know it will give us an opportunity to play with knob choice — the hardware bin at the store is filled with options. Whether ceramic, resin or metal, the intersted added by updating the knobs can make the piece stand out.
Oh, what a difference a couple coats of paint can make! We chose Jolie Paints in Legacy for both of these solid, heavy bookshelves. Most of the shelves were able to be removed from the tall cabinet and this is MUCH easier for painting. Pop them out and paint vertically, then reach back to paint the panel for a quick paint job. The large cabinet SOLD in a few days.
The wider shelf, while much more decorative, was a little more challenging to paint. I prefer to tip these cabinets so it is easier to get the top of the shelf and the undersides of the lower shelves. The back of this piece is beautiful wood planks so we did not paint. It is currently housing our awesome puzzles!
Our friend and customer, Tracy Wright with Sotheby’s Realty, took a Jolie Beginner workshop at fivethirty home in January. She quickly realized this was just the paint to redo the kitchen cabinets at her mom’s Florida home.
Here is what Tracy has to say: “My friend and I took a painting class with Erica @ Five Thirty Home and we had so much fun! The class offered lots of ideas and tips on colors, finishes, techniques, and styles. I then helped my mom paint her entire kitchen with the Jolie paint and it turned out amazing. The paint was easy to work with and went a long way. The techniques we learned in class were very helpful as we tackled the project. It updated the kitchen so much after 20 years of being oak. It now looks beautiful and we had a great time doing it. As a realtor I am often helping people update their homes either prior to listing or after a purchase and this is an easy and fun way to add a lot of bang for you buck and the best part is you can do it yourself!”
We did some quick shipping and wo arranged for a drop ship of two gallons of Gesso White from Jolie and sent several 500 mL of Clear Wax from Zionsville to Florida!
The ladies had a successful trip and the cabinets are all done – check out the kitchen now! All the old oaken honey cabinets are now fresh and white….
I love that it has a fresh, crisp look now.
The new paint job makes the appliances look more modern too.
Great job on LOTS of cabinets, gals!!
A buffet is a great place to start a dining room makeover. Whether you’re planning to give an existing piece a refresh, or you’re on the hunt for something to transform on a budget, painting your dining room buffet or sideboard is an easy way to update your space.
The buffet is a versatile, sturdy piece of furniture typically used for storage of dinnerware, table linens and other items. It also serves as a great place to display your favorite home decor or lay out serving dishes during meal-time. Because buffets often act as an anchor piece in a space, they present a great opportunity to make a statement and set the tone for the rest of the room.
We have refurbished many buffets over the years at fivethirty home. I would say it is one of the pieces we are known for – here are some of our greatest hits!
If we’ve talked in person or you’ve read much here, you know I love a good navy! Jolie’s Classic Navy on the classic lines of this Duncan Phyfe piece looks amazing! We sold this piece in January to a lovely local couple and they are thrilled to fill it up with blue and white tea cups and blue willow china. Yay – I love it when our customers are excited about a piece!
The before on this one gives me some vintage vibes, how about you? The darker stain around the outside of the drawer fronts and the detail at the bottom was a little too much for us so we cracked open a can of Jolie Paint in the color Bliss. It is a beautiful aqua color and brought this piece our of the 70’s!
This piece looks like a nice, pull out stool to keep stylishly tucked away until you need to reach something around the house. And it totally is. It also happens to be very, very sturdy. Like really heavy – no way it is going to tip sturdy! Two coats of MMSMP in Trophy and some antiquing wax have given it a whole new look!
We love these – I always look for them when I am buying furniture for the store. While they are traditionally a magazine holder, I think they are perfect for a laptop or iPad charging area. Need to clear some of the clutter off your desk? File your electronics away into this handy-dandy holder! This one is redone in Jolie Uptown Ecru with some light distressing to show through the beautiful original wood undertone.
