Hi, Dear Bold Ones of Artsy Chicks Rule!

Nancy is so sweet to allow me to share some of my projects with you, and I am just thrilled to be here! This girl has some series skillz with Chalk Paint, does she not???

My name is Gwen and I am the author of The Bold Abode, where I share stuff I build and things I sew and even Gluten Free munchies…

I love living in color, and as you can see from my Home Sweet Home Tour that is under way, I totally put that into practice!

We’ve been in this house for four years, and it is slowly becoming ours.

My very favorite project is a recent one… I took our builder boring staircase and turned it into something Bold!

Black and White Wallpaper Stairs

Using removable wallpaper from Spoonflower, I made a fun and funky staircase that really is one of a kind. Would you ever consider putting wallpaper on your stair risers?

Last year, I also put together a little Pallet Project. I had my eyes on this Nantucket Porch Swing, but with a price tag of over $800, I knew that was an unrealistic dream!

So, when I found some pallets made of quality wood, I knew I just had to try my hand at building a porch swing inspired by my dream one.

It was a labor of love and, so far, it’s held up!

As you can see, I love color. In fact, my love of color is what inspired my blog name.

As the home decor trend moved to a more neutral palette, I realized that I was not going to be following along. When I started blogging, I knew that my home would be filled with color and that I couldn’t hide it. I just had to be bold about it… and thus, The Bold Abode was born!

You can add it gradually and subtlety but using color is fun! I encourage you to play with it… to try it out!

    1. Yes she sure does! I love all the color. Thanks so much for stopping by and saying “hi” Abby! Hope you are having a great week. :)

  1. Aren’t those stairs fabulous! I love the word “bold” in her blog title because it really indicates that she is not afraid to try things!! I love that approach to using colour- if you don’t like it you can always change it later, but don’t be afraid to try!
