Peacock Blue.. a side table makeover

Ok, I found a color that I find myself wanting to paint more and more..
Peacock Blue.

It started when I was given a side table a few days ago, that needed a little TLC.

My daughter and I went through paint colors and I chose to go with a pop of color..
Peacock Blue.  

So we went home, and I sanded it all down.

Next, I wiped it down to get the dust off it, and then I painted it with 2 coats of Peacock Blue.
Lastly, I wanted to "distress" it. So I used black paint and a fairly dry sponge brush to
give it more detail and a distressed look.

I also gave it a coat of poly to seal/protect it.. because my initial plans were to modify it and use it for shoe storage in my entryway where it would get a lot of use.

This color above is off.. it was evening and hard to get a good photo of the actual color.
It is much closer to this:

I mentioned before that my initial plans for this piece were to change it up, and use it as
entryway storage for shoes etc..
Well, I am still deciding exactly how I want to do this project, or what I want to use for it.
Lots of idea's.. just need to make up my mind. :0)

So while I am deciding what I want to do for sure to change our entryway storage.

I also went ahead and gave my current entryway storage an update:

Really liking the Peacock Blue color.. :0)
