Just wondering if anyone can tell me the finish on the blue aqua unit beside the chair? I would love to look into finishing a side table like this.

i just dry-brushed it. it is a very dark wood underneath so some of it shows through. i used some leftover aqua wall paint.
the frame is styrofoam moulding i bought at Home Depot - and put together and painted.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Kim's electric yellow ornate frame pulls you right into her inspiration board.
3. Make storage fun and accessible. I love this bright blue armoire - it's a great marriage of function and style.
Becky Harris added this to Do You Personalize Your Workspace?
This vibrant space has Kim Johnson (of Desire to Inspire) all over it. Again, a framed bulletin board is a great way to keep clippings and photos neat.
Becky Harris added this to Design Talk: Eclectic vs. Collected
Have no fear. Blogger Kim Johnson of Desire to Inspire makes no bones about her love of bright color and bold patterns, and somehow it all just works. I credit her design personality.
Lily Gahagan added this to Eclectic Style: Brave Color Mixes
The message here? Go big or go home. Jewel tones dazzle against a bright white background, and work together surprisingly well.

Having a furry friend nearby to pet helps the work go by faster too.

Haut en couleur Idéal pour qui veut travailler dans une ambiance explosive, ce mood-board aux couleurs vives est plein d’audace. Il s’agit d’un cadre de style jaune vif, qui contient de nombreuses images aux couleurs acidulées, pour une déco marquée, pop et rococo à la fois.
