My typewriter. My beautiful green, petite vintage Royal typewriter. How I love thee!
Now, I realize that green (specifically emerald) is the Pantone color of the year, but I jumped on the green bandwagon ages ago... seriously. I was 7, loved pink and pink and pink. I turned 8 and I loved green. Still do, even though I flirt with yellow and aqua as my bright choices.
So, I had the color matched as closely as possible with no specific purpose. I have been slowly but surely remaking my living room over the past several months. I had a coffee table that was unpainted > became an upholstered bench with painted legs > back to a coffee table painted black > and now looks like this >
This room needed to be lighter. Goldfish crumbs show up more on black. So, I painted it one of my pale greys and distressed it and all that jazz. But, I had this overwhelming wild hair to add something. Enter the Typewriter Green paint.
It adds a little something... but just a little. I could have cropped the kiddo out on the sofa as well, but that adds a little something too, don't you think?
Bye for now~
