Coaster Time

I've finally made coasters after having our nice, new end tables for about 6 months and our revamped coffee table for about a year.

I naturally found this idea on Pinterest. And it's pretty simple, and fairly inexpensive. 
Actually, the most difficult thing for me, was choosing the design I wanted our coasters to be from all of these options

Jesse said he liked the green the best and it was the first paper I picked out, so that's what I went with. Started out by cutting squares to fit the tiles (bathroom tiles on clearance at Lowe's for 35 cents).

Next up was using a few layers of Mod Podge to get the paper good and stuck on the tile.

I was in quite a rush with my last steps and bypassed picture taking. I cut out felt squares and hot glued to the bottom so the tiles had a soft padding when skooching across the tabletops. Then, I sprayed them with a clear coat sealer.

Final step: Enjoy the awesome-ness.

Check out our new pet, Ollie the Owl. He's bringin' in the wisdom to the living room.

  2. They look great! But being an avid owl fan I love your green owl! Ollie is a good name too.

    1. Thanks, Niki! I love just about everything that has an owl on, and for some reason finally just started allowing myself to buy them! :)

  3. Hi,
    I like this idea, were the tiles porous or ceramic? Thanks for sharing!

    1. They are ceramic tiles. So far the entire thing is holding up just fine! :)

  4. Such a great idea! They look really nice. I think they would make great gifts, too.

    1. Definitely a great idea for gifts! Maybe I could use up some of the fun paper I found and didn't use! Thanks for stopping by!
