Robin's Egg Blue Painted Desk

This morning, I noticed that Kate from Centsational Girl girl asked for suggestions for the perfect robin's egg blue.  I think I have it though I did not discover it on my own; my sister-in-law who is a designer/principal at Katheryn Robertson Ltd. enlightened me to the correct color.  She recommended Benjamin Moore 745 Blue Rapids for this old desk that I painted about 2 years ago.  I hadn't yet started this blog, so I don't have pictures or remember what I did, but I'm pretty sure that I: removed hardware, lightly sanded, cleaned the desk then painted two coats of this color.  After the paint was dry, I used sandpaper to distress the corners.  I still haven't updated the hardware!

Though I took multiple pictures on various settings, I'm still not sure the pictures capture the color as it appears in person:

Thanks for reading!
