Aqua Magazine Rack Table

So much turquoise and aqua going on in blog land and I just love it! Picked up a 50 cent can of oops paint at HD. It was little on the bright side so I toned it down with a touch of charcoal craft paint. To tone down a color your best bets are brown or black...just a little at a time until you get the desired shade. Black works best with cold colors and brown for warm colors. Distressed and glazed it and now I am deciding whether or not to mosaic the top with some rose china....decisions, decisions!
