I'm still in painting mode from when I did the blue seashells last month.
I'd been wanting some new coasters to use on the deck, but hadn't found any I liked...well...actually, I haven't looked all that much.
I have a pack of plain cork ones, but they weren't doing anything for me, so I decided to paint them.
I first tried to stencil a flower, but the paint ran under the stencil and made an awful mess. So, on to plan B.
I painted a few stripes, but taping them was making me crazy.
So, I painted the rest of the stripes freehand.
Don't look too closely. :)
Then, this morning, I stopped by the thrift store, and ran across a pack of four stone coasters. I couldn't believe they were just $2.00. My kind of price but...
...they had a golf ball on them ~ which I didn't want. But for $2, I would do something with them.
So, I got out the sandpaper and tried to sand off the golf ball.
Finally, Hubby took pity on me and got the orbital sander, some coarse grit sandpaper, and finished sanding them. It actually only took him a few minutes.
I washed off the dust, and while they were drying...
...found some number stencils and a Sharpie pen in my craft box.
I taped the stencil to hold it in place, traced the outline, and filled in with the Sharpie.
New stone coasters with numbers!
Whoo, Hoo! Now I won't forget which glass is mine.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Hope you like my coasters.
