While shopping Lowe's a few weeks back (although trust us, we are there almost daily) I spotted the Pantone Universe line! I had been looking for a new color for this old lamp in the corner of our dining room that we have had for years. I love the bright pantone colors but was a little hesitant when it came to this year's color of the year- emerald. I have never been much of a darker green fan but I figured I would push on my comfort zone to see what would happen.
I purchased a small sampler of the emerald and got to painting. The paint itself went on and covered very well. I paired my finished lamp with a drum shade and added a few different decor items (a thrifted ceramic floral candle holder and a repurposed golf tin from Kiel's grandfather's farm turned candle by Waxsmith Vintage Vessels). I am super happy with how this little corner pops in our darker dining room!
