I finished another project this week, see – I told you I was a project finishing machine lately! Amazing what you can get accomplished with just a little more free time.Using tumbled tiles from Home Depot, my current fave line of scrapbook paper, mod podge, felt and sealant I created a custom set of coasters for our living room.Actually, I made 2 sets, using two different types of tile just to see how they hold up. One set has gone off to live with a sweet friend who has agreed to be my guinea pig!I want to make sure the sealant I used (6 coats) will hold up to a good amount of use, and that the felt backing is strong enough.As soon as I know I have the correct combination of materials then I have plans for another set for the upstairs family room. I will happily rid our house of the cardboard-bendy-paper-edge-splitty coasters we currently own!Actually, I have a whole plan for that upstairs family room…it’s the last room to be painted in our house and I cannot wait to be rid of the last bit of the awful peachy-beige flesh tone paint!
**On a completely unrelated note**
One of my very favourite blogs is Flamingo Toes, and every week she has a recap of her week and she shares some of the google searches that people use to somehow end up at her blog. A lot of really random weird stuff, and funny too.
Most of my searches are kind of basic “white frames” , and “gallery scrapbook wall” type of thing. But this week I got:
“what is the white wooden block with holes in it called in the unfinished wood section?“
Actually kind of made my day! Wish I had the answer, and now I feel the urge to cruise an unfinished wood section just to see if I can see what the heck they were talking about!
