AS I mentioned last night I decided to take some 49 cent coasters I picked up at the Ladysmith Thrift Store and turn them into something more appealing. I decoupaged them with handmade paper (I didn't make it - I got it at the Dollarama....my favourite store!) and then I printed some bird silhouettes from the internet and voila....new life in old coasters! I think they need something else? Maybe some stain? For sure they need a good coat of spray varathane to waterproof them before use. Anyway - here's the before and after and I am going to have to apologize for the crappy photos because my beautiful camera is dying a slow, painful death and doesn't want to focus on much these days....
So 49 cents a little paper and ink...probably $1 total for their new look....what do you think?
Next up - I am going to fix up this cute little easel - I have some ideas of how to revive it. I am either going to use it to display my jewelry when I go to markets or I will make it "pretty" for one of my little great-nieces. Either way - it will be a fun project to tackle. Stay tuned for the afters on this one.
As always, God Bless and GET BUSY!
