Use a Sharpie to Create a Funky Coffee Table
[Editor's Note: Sharpies have come a long way baby. If you thought they were only good for making garage sale signs, you were wrong. These days people are using them to make custom dog bowls, adorn lamp shades and my personal favorite decorate coffee tables. I must admit blogger Laura Putnam had me at floral couch, but the juxtaposition of the hand written coffee table really drove her interior design vision home. - Jen]
Coffee tables are not the only piece of furniture that are good for the Sharpie treatment: "The best part about this method is that it can be used for just about anything. You can do this to create wall art, stenciling on walls and any type of accessory. If you were to use a heavier font, you would just trace the outline and then fill in with the paint pen. You can also do images of any kind."
