DIY tile coasters.

I was planning on making these fancy schmancy tile coasters that I saw on Pinterest to protect my $1 coffee table. I headed to Home Depot, and when I was looking at the different tiles they had, I realized they had a light blue and light green one that matched our living room colors perfectly. I picked up two of each color for $0.30 each, and reveled in the fact that the colored coasters meant much less work.


I stopped at the Dollar Tree to pick up this pack of 36 cork pads for {big surprise} $1.


Here’s where the geniosity kicked in {not really, it’s super simple.} Stick a piece of cork on each corner of the tile & you’ve got a super cheap coaster.



Our last coasters were these cheapy net coaster thingies that let all the sweat from the cold glass right through to my $1 coffee table. Not helpful.


The tile ones are much better for my new table.


P.S. you may have noticed I have lime in my water. I always ask for lime instead of lemon in my water. It’s sooo much better! :)


You’ll have to try it and let me know what ya think!
