Create a Herringbone-Pattern Tabletop

If you like the textured look of herringbone, see what a paint comb can do. Drawing a comb through wet colored glaze gave this plain laminate table an almost three-dimensional look. Once you get handy with the technique, you can experiment with waves, zigzags, and crosshatches and on other surfaces, from walls to flower pots. 

Find easy-to-follow instructions at How to Create a Herringbone-Pattern Tabletop.

What do you think of the textured look?
