So I have to say, I really enjoy playing mixologist and customizing a color for a piece.  I took a much darker turquoise blue and mixed it with an aqua color and this is what I got, love it!  Of course I forgot to take a before pic but you can imagine it as a knotty pine console table.  A little old school, well built, but needed some character. Instead of going all blue, I thought a dark stain top would make it a little more rich.  Slight distressing  around the edges to give it a worn look and some mocha colored glazed to tone down the vibrant color.   A fun Anthropologie knob to add something special and finish it off!
