Until buying brand new furniture in our new home, we never really needed to worry about using coasters and placemats – our furniture just wasn’t nice enough to need to worry about. Truth be told I’m still not overly fussed about protecting our new pieces but it’s nice to have coasters for hot drinks and to add a little colour to our coffee table. I bought these cork coasters from IKEA when I was in Sydney the year before last, with the intention of using them for a DIY. Better late than never!
Paint (3 or 4 different colours)
It couldn’t get any simpler, just grab your first colour and paint on a few brush strokes, then repeat with each colour.
