Handpainted Update

Materials: IKEA Coffee Table

Description: I had this coffee table from IKEA, which has nice clean lines to it – but I wanted to do some thing exciting to it – a herringbone pattern with paint markers.

I used silver and gold metallic paint markers for this. And I have drawn them freehand for an organic feel.

    I woulda had to make shorter lines in order to keep it looking right, because I surely woulda messed up and then had to change the design! It’s nice, so Good Job!

  3. It didn’t take that long actually. They were freely drawn to give an organic look.

  4. That looks beautiful. I would have gone insane drawing all those lines.
