The perfect furniture paint for this coral dresser we used in my daughter’s room and used as the entry at a rustic wedding!

The perfect painted dresser in coral

I couldn’t even begin to tell you how excited it has made me to decorate my little girl’s room! I had the two oldest kids in one tiny room for 2.5 years that also doubled as a storage room and play room and there was a sliver of space between the two beds. It meant I was uninspired, and felt like I couldn’t do much to decorate or make each of them feel like they have space. We now have them in separate rooms and her room just got me so inspired to create.

This sweet dresser came from my aunt in San Diego and she was going to get rid of it.  I loved it so much {and was in desperate need of more furniture after living in 900 square feet!} so she let me have it.

The Best Furniture Paint

I used a flat Behr Color Guava Jelly P180-4 and BB Frosch Chalkpaint Powder. It was my first time using it, because I had just made my own before, and I LOVE how it goes on. It is the PERFECT furniture paint. This paint is the perfect consistency and dried nice and thick and even. I lightly sanded before, but mostly just to clean it, using about 220 grit.

Then I mixed up the paint, just a small batch at first, and painted it on. I like to wax after painting because it makes any lines disappear and the surface nice and smooth, and it protects it from scratches and peeling paint I use this Minwax Finishing Wax. After it was waxed, we just added the sparkly hardware from Home Depot {I found some almost exactly the same on Amazon here}. I looked and looked, but didn’t find any I liked more than these for a wedding or the little girl’s room.

Here is the piece before in Reese’s room. It’s actually a super cute piece and was naturally distressed. I felt a little bad painting over it because it had such charm to it. But alas, it’s new life is glamorous and I’m sure she’ll forgive me for dressing her up. After I painted the walls a light gray, it didn’t stand out at all against the wall…
