Mixing the Perfect Coral with Chalk Paint

  Mixing the Perfect Coral with Chalk Paint

I was recently asked by a friend to paint her daughter’s bedroom furniture.  The daughter wanted this to be the inspiration for her new bedroom:

Hale Navy Pin

I am not sure of the source of this design board, but it is gorgeous inspiration!  I love the contrast of the deep navy with the playful coral.

The furniture my friend gave me was already painted a soft pink.

It was very pretty, but this almost ten year old was ready for something a little more grown up and bold.

To get this coral color, I used three Annie  Sloan colors:

Coral Annie Sloan Chalk Paint

Barcelona Orange – Pure White – Emperor’s Silk

I mixed: 1:2:1

1 part Barcelona Orange : 2 parts Pure White : 1 part Emperor’s Silk

And this was my result:

Annie Sloan custom Coral

A beautiful coral color!

I also painted the dresser in the same color.

I used a gold paint for the handles and accents.  The coral and gold accents work so well together.  I think I am in love!
