The many shades of coral

Hello again,

I have been getting lots of questions and comments on my coral pieces I have recently refinished. Some people LOVE it and want to know the exact color I used. I tried so many shades before I found one that wasn’t to orange or to pink. It it perfect! My secret shade is Coral Gables from Benjamin Moore.

The first piece I refinished with my coral color was a fabulous dresser. This thing was in great shape, extremely well made and heavy. I did have to use some wood filler on the top to fill in some deep gouges and also sand it down quite a bit because it had small moisture damage.  I then sanded down the whole piece and cleaned it. We also repaired a drawer where the track had broken and glued the drawer back together.

Isn’t it pretty! This dresser sold really fast. The client who purchased it has a grey room and wanted to incorporate coral. She said she had been searching for something like this for a long time. Glad I could help!

Next up was the coral buffet table I refinished. I was really nervous about painting a side board table in this color.  It is a bold choice and makes a huge statement! I am excited to see the pictures of this piece incorporated in my clients room. She is using navy and coral, and I really like that color combination.

Thats it for the coral pieces! I had another client want a coral buffet but we worked together and came up with another idea! I am currently working on it for her and it should be finished in the next few days. She also purchased a custom built farmhouse table that Mike built and a matching bench. I’m definitely excited to see her get this room together! I’ll add a pic when she sends me one.
