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:

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:
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:
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!
