There is nothing better to get me out of a crafting funk than a little instant gratification on a beautiful Saturday!
I started with some old coasters my mother in law purchased for us some 7 years ago. I've never been a fan of their design, but they are really functional. You can see on the bottom one that Madelyn had already begun to pretty them up a little.
I started out by painting one coat of stone colored paint so that the darker colors wouldn't show through my pretty papers. While I was painting I noticed something pretty neat about the paint that was already on the coasters. See it?
Here is the finished set of 4 coasters. I have another set to do, but Chris likes the tractors so I may only do the other two cat coasters (once I find them???). I really like the subtle tones and pretty patterns.
I originally bought these pretty papers for a project re-doing my tv tables from their shabby wood to something glamorous but after a simple coat of stone-colored spray paint I was happy with them. I'm excited to still have these pretties in my daily living space as a little splash of yumminess!
