Summer is all about spending time outdoors and outdoor entertaining is on my mind! We've been working very hard on our deck to create a casual area for eating and a place to sip a cocktail
or two. And since no one likes water rings left on their furniture, I made a few coasters.
Ceramic tiles are cheap, I bought mine for about .30 each at Home Depot. Wallpaper samples are free from Serena & Lily and Farrow & Ball. (Thanks again, Caitlin!)
I used a tile as my guide, then traced and cut the paper into 4 squares.
To adhere the paper to the tiles I used equal parts clear Elmer's glue and water. After the paper was dry I gave each coaster a few thin coats of Polycrylic. I allowed them to cure for a few days before using. The last step is to add felt pads or cork to the bottom of each coaster for surface protection.
They would also make a thoughtful housewarming gift.
Easy and inexpensive!
Cheers to summer!
