Meet Fiona, the side table

Fiona was a shy girl.  So much so, that when people talked about her, that would be the first thing they would remember.  "She's that shy girl, right?!?"

Not anymore.

Maybe it was going off to Smith College, where she started to feel comfortable in her own skin.

Perhaps it was the two years of roller derby where she was hailed as Punky Bruiser.

Or maybe it was just settling into life, doing what she loves, hanging with real people, and being happy.

I'm a little late to the party, but I had to paint something emerald as it's Pantone's 2013 color of the year.  I do love the pop of color it would give to any room.  And it looks particularly handsome paired with the wood top.

Fiona will be at Robin's Egg a little later this week, looking for her new home.

Have a fabulous day,

Sharing with:


  1. I love Fiona!!!! Both the name and the table. What kind of paint did you use to dress her?

  2. Pretty color and pretty table...lovely job on her!

  3. I was going to ask same ?, what paint, what exact color. I love her name, perfect. I'd love to have that table in our bedroom. I have an end table similar, have been wrestling with what color to paint it. Now I know when you share the good data, please? Happy weekend

  4. The paint was a sample I got from Lowes. It was Emerald by Pantone. The photos actually don't do it justice, as the real color is a little deeper, but you'll love it.

  5. Love this makeover! The green color is fabulous!
