DIY: ikea coffee table updated

I have this coffee table from ikea, which has nice clean lines to it - but I have always thought that I could do something exciting with the table top. So I wanted to do a herringbone pattern with paint markers. I used my t-square from freshman years of college to pencil in my guidelines. 

I used the same thickness of the t-square to make my guidelines. Oh, and make sure you have cleaned the table top well. 

I used silver and gold metallic paint markers for this. And I have drawn them freehand for an organic feel. Scroll down to see how it turned out in the end!
