Today I’m sharing how I created the perfect coral 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: (Image found on Pinterest)
I am not sure of the source of this design board, but it is a gorgeous inspiration! I love the contrast of the deep navy with the playful coral. The two colors compliment each other so well.
The furniture my friend gave me has 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:
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:
I think this is the perfect coral paint color!
I also painted the dresser in the same color.
I used gold paint for the handles and accents. The coral and gold accents work so well together. I think I am in love!
Would you be brave enough to add coral and gold to your home?

It turned out beautifully!
This is stunning and I love the coral color you made! Beautiful..beautiful. I’ve used the Benjamin Moore Hale Navy color and it’s my favorite navy blue!
Thank you, Wendi! I appreciate you stopping by and the comment! I was looking around at all of your fun projects. I think we share the love of giving furniture new life with paint! It’s so nice to “meet” you!
