Color of console? - This color seems to have been used a lot in the 1800's. It is a greenish greyish with a hint of blue. Does anyone know the color I am referring to? I would love to use it as accent color in my home or on the porch.

I think I know the color you mean--you might also want to look at milk paints to see if you can find it among those.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Between Naps on the Porch added this to January: The Perfect Time to Build a Potting Station
Upon closer inspection, I discovered it was outfitted with a vintage sink. A narrow shelf above and a wide shelf below offered lots of good storage for pots and gardening supplies. Of course, I wouldn't recommend ever leaving any chemicals within reach of young children. You'll want to keep those up high or under lock and key. Wouldn't this be a wonderful spot to spend some quality potting time this spring?
Becky Harris added this to Consider a Salvaged Sink
A fabulous potting bench in this Georgia townhome's yard includes a functioning salvaged sink, complete with dish drainer.
Becky Harris added this to Get the Dirt on Potting Benches
I spied this bench at a show house here in Georgia, and I've been dreaming of it ever since. It has one of the handiest features possible, a utility sink. This particular bench incorporates a salvaged sink.
Marianne Lipanovich added this to Lay of the Landscape: Cottage Garden Style
Of course, you'll need a place to work, whether it's starting seedlings or arranging fresh-picked flowers. This bench is functional, and the soft green color blends in with the plantings around it.
Marianne Lipanovich added this to Pet-Proofing Your Home: A Room-by-Room Guide
Traditional snail and slug bait is also toxic. If you need to keep your vegetables and other plants safe from these mauraders, look for barrier methods or pet-friendly bait formulations.

Martha Stewart's Milk Pail is a similar color that tends more toward the green, or try Valspar's Cafe Blue which is similar but tends more toward the blue.
