Materials: Lack, black marker, Glitsa

Description: We have a Lack coffee table that has been used for six years, and unfortunately there were some small damages on the tabletop. I first found it a too big and too white surface to put in our new living room, but I did want to use the table because it's a very practical one. So I decided to make a drawing on it, so that it would cover the damages and make it a less white & more unique table.

I used a black marker for this drawing. They always say black markers are permanent, but it's easy to wash the ink off with a rough sponge. There will always get scratches on the table, so in time the drawing would just damage and disappear... So I had to roughen the tabletop a little bit first, after that I made the drawing (took a couple of days...) and then I finished it with 3 layers of Glitsa lacquer. The result is quite nice, I think :)
