If you are local to Zionsville and taking a walk during the Coronacation, stop by our window to see this beaut! Jolie Swedish Gray is one of my favorite colors in the line, the perfect “greige” for any piece.
We have two matching side tables that were finished in Jolie’s 2020 color of the year, Legacy. These started out a little rough, especially with the white mystery material on the tops. We sanded that down and started fresh. After two coats of Jolie paint and wax, we grabbed some complementary knobs from the hardware bin to complete the look! What do you think?
After a few hours of painting, which included dry time and chicken quesadillas for dinner, I’m back to work with my Jolie Clear Wax and a Wax Brush I found in the basement! I love how easy it is to apply wax. People often ask if a brush is necessary and while the answer is no, it is a worthwhile investment if you have several projects on the books. Check out how easy this is. Just wipe off the excess with a lint-free towel.
While we are at home on #coronacation (as named by my 15 year old), I finally decided to tackle the bathroom cabinet project in the boys’ bathroom. For those of you who may not know, I have four boys aged 9-17 and they all share a bathroom. Part of the hold up, as most of you have struggled with also, was the color. I chose Jolie Paints in Sage as a soft but light, bright color because their bathroom has dark walls. Here’s a link to my introductory video where I show you the before and talk about my plans for the project. Stay tuned all week as I share the different parts of the process – painting, waxing and hardware.
People often ask how our paints work on caning. As you can see on this piece, it works like a charm! We used the equivalent of a sample size of Jolie Paints in Antique White on this cute little side table with some extra storage! Heavy distressing and clear wax complete the look. Contact us for a local Jolie paint delivery during the Coronacation (as named by my favorite second child)!
