The Blue Green Bean Side Table by Grant-Norén features a unique asymmetrical bean-shaped tabletop and 3 curved legs. The top surface and sides are hand-painted with a distinct wood grain design in shades of blue, green, aqua, and black, created in a traditional Scandinavian wood painting technique.
Each piece in this colorful collection by Grant-Norén is made in the USA from a variety of woods. These highly skilled artisans hand-craft each piece with lots of care and precision, and then create unique, vibrant hand-painted imagery.
A traditional Scandinavian three step process is used to create this faux wood grain finish:
- First — An underlay of stain or paint is applied.
- Second — A casein emulsion, usually buttermilk and pigment are mixed and used as a glaze.
- Third — Several rich layers of lacquer are applied to protect the work. Notice the unique feel appeal by allowing your hand to really experience the “piano finish” smoothness and depth.
