Coasters Get a New Look
Friday, July 23, 2010
In walks wall paper. I love wall paper for many reasons, but my favorite is for using it in unexpected places like here and here. If you pop into a wallpaper store, be sure to check the clearance bins. There is always an interesting pattern that you could use to line shelves or the linen closet.
To make these coasters look a little more current, I placed them on the wallpaper and traced the outline. Then I cut out the shapes. Using modge podge, I painted the surface of the coasters with a small brush and applied the wallpaper cuttings, smoothing out the bubbles with my fingers. Once this dried thoroughly, I applied three more coats to the top, drying in between coats. Once they were completely dry, I sprayed them with a protective coat of poly.
Oh and have a great weekend!
