If you watch the video I do believe it will Pantone match. I just wish it said whether or not it's compatible with an Ipad or Ipod. I don't own a smart phone.

I sit on the floor all the LAYING on the floor seriously disturbs one of my cats...she won't stop fretting, tapping my face and pestering me until I sit up. She seems to have PTSD of me passing out a few times!

I'd like to actually see one before I made up my mind. I drive a Mini & live in the country. I'm no stranger to big SUV's and pickups attempting to run me over multiple times on a daily basis.

absolutely fabulous! I want a higher res picture so I can read all the framed notes on the wall!

robert77, you obviously haven't lived with a cat/pet if a little dirt bothers you. I live with 3 and I don't have any problem with the 5 second rule about dropped food. That, or I have a 'really' healthy immune system. :D

"Evil Bob" lol!

Gorgeous, paired down bachelor pad! Wish I could live a minimalist lifestyle, unfortunately i'm a packrat. Of course, all my friends LOVE to come visit my house and poke around, so... guess it's just a grass-over-the-fence moment. :D

I've got something (chair? coffee table?) with that exact same leg. My money's on late 60's to mid 70's.

I bought an entire gallon of what was supposed to be a limey green chartruese but turned out being an electric baby poop yellow?!? I swear there was NO green pigment that had been waved anywhere near that paint can. So of course I painted both my front doors with it, just because i had it....

4 years later I caved on the fact that the color sucked and repainted them Sherwin Williams 'Blue Lake' with Expresso Brown trim. I love them, my neighbors love them. Huge sigh of relief all around.

The dumpsters at college after semester ends are DEFINITELY a gold mine!
My roommates & I scoured them all and came up with some real treasures, some of which I still have today - 30 years later. Of course, unlike the unlucky folks trashing everything when they moved out. I had acess to a full sized, long wheel base pickup! :D

I absolutely adore soapstone and have since my high school chemistry days. Hope to eventually use it in a kitchen myself. Looking forward to seeing what it looks like after it's oiled.

and it only works on the newest IPod/Pad/Phone software...I bought it a couple of weeks ago only to find out that it won't run on my IPad without upgrading the operating system...which if I do, the IPad will no longer sync with my computer, which CAN'T be upgraded any further than 10.5 because it's a powerPC.

fabulous! and love that you took the time and effort on something many would have pitched to the curb. Personally I love the green, it's authentic to the piece and the period it's from. If I might enquire, what color/brand paint did you use?
