Add a little Soy Sauce

A little Asian inspiration.

I loved this table from the moment I saw it.

It just adds a little bit of Asian flavor.

Kind of like adding soy sauce to your rice!

The top was pretty beat up, so it had to be painted.

I used my homemade chalk paint:  1 cup any color flat interior latex paint.
                                                    2 Tablespoons unsanded grout.
                                                    1 to 2 Tablespoons water.
I have to admit, I've never used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, so I can't compare, but I love that I can pick any color and have it stick to anything!

Now this little table can add a little flavor to anyone's living room!
