Oh Em Ghee, can you believe my mother let me do this? NEVER in a million years did I think she would say yes when I suggested painting her dresser coral!
I nearly fell over, then I ran to the hardware store to get the paint as fast as I could, before she changed her mind. She needed a coral painted dresser, and I was just the lady for the job (plus I’m free, she had no choice).
Look what I started with, the dresser was in great shape, just verrry dated. It needed a little Virginia TLC.
I chose Smoked Salmon (PPG1189-5 | 131-5) from Pittsburg Paints Voice of Color collection in an interior Semi-gloss latex. It took one coat of primer and two coats of paint, which I managed to do in a day. Amazing what I can accomplish when my mom is wrangling the kiddos.
Can you believe this dresser has 20 pulls on it! We went with the cheapest ones the hardware store had (and since I had the idea and did it all in one day, there was no time for shopping around). In hind sight I probably should have spray painted the old ones.
I love the Smoked Salmon with the Blue Violet (147-6) my mom chose, it’s almost refreshing to see it Coral not paired with mint (don’t get me wrong I love that combo, but is getting to be what everyone expects).
I’m really happy how this coral painted dresser turned out, it really gave this bedroom a new breath of life.
What do you think of the blue and coral color combination? Would you have the guts to paint a piece of furniture a bold color?
