The Perfect Coral Paint

Today I’m sharing how I created the perfect coral 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: (Image found on Pinterest)

Hale Navy Pin

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:

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:

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?
