No. 20 {emerald green & loving it}

September 14, 2011

Hel­looooo! Remem­ber back 64 years ago when I showed you my design board for No. 20? Then to tease you even more, I gave you a sneak peek of No. 20? Did that post make you think that I was going to show you the whole thing SOON? Well, I didn’t…sorry about that. I could tell you about all the rea­sons why it was soooo drawn out, but.…YAWN. This guy just needed a lot of love and in a time of many dis­trac­tions. Such is life.

BUT…here he is.…emerald green & lov­ing it…
No. 20
{sorry for the table & chandy in the way.…it was rainy for a week and I had to work on it in our house. I am lik­ing it in MY din­ing room though…with all my fab­rics– right?}
No. 20 {before}

The fab­ric is vin­tage and I only had enough to do this ONE PIECE. So, I can’t do this combo again.…sad.
No. 20

Hand­some legs…
No. 20

I thought about doing the inside a cream color, but wanted to keep it sim­ple and green so the fab­ric pan­els would stand out more.

No. 20

I hap­pened to have the per­fect wall­pa­per for the drawer that matched the fabric…YES!…

No. 20

As PERFECT as this piece looks in my din­ing room, we are not keep­ing him. SO SAD. I really really tried to get Nathan to see why we needed it. I do love him (No. 20) (and Nathan too).

All that to say, he is look­ing for a good home and you can go grab him now in our shop.

No. 20

I kind of doc­u­mented some of the process for this one and I want to do a lit­tle tuto­r­ial on it in the next few days. It will be my first “how-to” on fur­ni­ture, so we will see…

Cheers!

    Num­ber 20 is beau­ti­ful!  What color/brand of green did you use?

      Thanks! As for the exact color– most of our col­ors we will share, but we have a hand­ful of favorites that we keep as our “secret sauce” for 508 (this emer­ald is one of them). I will say that you should pick an emer­ald that is brighter than you think you want and then by the time you dis­tress and put a stain or wax/stain fin­ish then it will end up the PERFECT shade. For No. 20, I used Fid­des wax (rug­ger brown). And usu­ally, no mat­ter where I find the color, I stick with Behr paint. Its a goodie.
