are you brave enough...

                                                  to go BOLD!
                                             
       Today, I thought I'd share my inspiration for painting the coffee table.
                                                      
      When I saw this fabulous peacock blue desk, painted by the cute, hip and
              stylish designer, Danielle, I couldn't wait to paint something!
                        (But, I chickened out and went with a safe neutral.)
                 Danielle's abode is chock-full of colorful amazingness!
                            
                                         

                                                                             
                    Here's more inspiration from around the blogosphere if you need
                                                 a dose of courage.
                                  
                            You could start small by jazzing up a chair or two...

            
                                                           
                                     or give new life to a thrift store find....
                     
            
                                            
                                          or use sunny yellow to brighten a corner....
                                 
                          
                                              
                                         or take your table up a notch....

                                   

                                           or add some spice to your kitchen....

                          
                                                
                                        or splash on a pretty pink for pizazz ....

                             
                                                                                                   
                                                 The possibilities are endless.... 

                                                 Are you the brave, bold type?
                                                    Or a wannabe like me!

Love all those bold colors....I am brave but you can't tell from all my latest projects...Maybe a bright green is in order!

I have a friend that calls me "Neutral Nelly," and when I go shopping, I always come home with a bag full of gray, black and white. I like encouraging others to go bold, though!

I'm a wannabe, but I do love your photos of the bold and the beautiful! Great inspiration, especially the peacock blue desk... Hmmm?!

Thanks so much for including my desk!

Love bold pieces - they can make such a statement in a room. I'm not afraid at all - just needs to be in the right space. Our current home is quite bold to say the least but I love it.

I could definitely do the red, but I'm a bit more neutral in my other choices.

Love your coffee table transformation. Great job!

Take care,

Lori
