Coral and Gold TV Console

It’s done! YAY! Little refresher: I am adding lots of color, including coral, to my living/family room. I picked up a dresser than I planned on using for a tv console a few weeks ago from a yard sale for $35. My limit when buying used furniture is $40 so I was happy to keep this purchase under that. I was super nervous about painting a big piece a bold color but with a little nudging from a few of my dear friends, I DID IT and boy am I in LOVE with the turn out!

…and here she is after a few coat of Sherwin Williams “Emotional” mixed with a bit of white paint.  

I really love the legs, the detail and the little gold knobs! Man, I love it all! 
What do you think? Are you a coral + gold fan??

  1. SWOON!! i thought i was over my fling with coral…. but now i am not so sure! this piece is AWESOME! i pinned this baby , oh yeah.

  2. How cute! Even if I wouldn’t know where coral fits into our home, I love the way it looks! And this is really a piece with “great bones”, so to speak – the wood details on the front are amazing =)

  3. I do love coral + gold and yours looks especially fresh popped against the wonderful gray striped wall. Think the color combo also perfectly suits the retro style of the credenza. I’ve been considering that same color palette for a bathroom and seeing how your room looks you might have made the decision for me. Love this.


  4. In love with it!!!! I have that coral pillow print in yellow, I am loving the coral though! Found you over at House of Hepworths.


  5. My boyfriend and I bought the same dresser and its taller counterpart at an estate sale last year but I’ve been going crazy trying to figure out what to do with them. Painting them was scaring me off but this turned out really well!! Thanks for the inspiration!

  6. I also just got the same dresser (free!!!!) from an estate. I noticed yours is bowing in the middle a bit. I checked out my dresser and yours is missing a middle leg that’s set way in the back of the dresser. Also thanks for the idea of painting the entire thing! I was just going to do the drawers or just the surround but I love this so much.
