Well it seems as though I cannot shut up about Spring.
I've been all about it here on the blog lately...
And now here I am blabbing about these lovely SPRING INSPIRED COASTERS I painted recently.
But I'm sure you don't blame me. I think everyone is ready for the color and warmth Spring brings!
I was inspired to make these coasters the minute I saw Abby's from Just A Girl And Her Blog!!
She made some fabulous Anthropologie Inspired Coasters that just scream SPRING!!
Aren't hers so fun?!
I obviously didn't do an exact copy cat. Instead I used some boring wooden coasters I already had sitting on my end table and spruced them up a bit with craft paint in some fun Spring colors.
I'm telling you...there is NOTHING paint can't bring back to life!
Here are the coasters sans paint...
To say they were boring is an understatement! They just looked so sad on my end table!
The update was an easy one! I just taped off my design and painted 2 coats of craft paint (Apple Barrel's Tropic Orange and Pale Green).
I wanted the wood to show through the paint just a tad and that's exactly what I got with 2 coats!
After the paint dried I applied 1 coat of Mod Podge to seal the paint and protect the coasters.
Would you believe this was my first time using Mod Podge?!
Needless to say, I am in love!
When the Mod Podge dried, I was left with the most perfect gloss ever! And I love that you can see the brush strokes!
And I just had to do a little before and after...
I just love how they turned out!
Aren't they just so fun and cheery now?!
Thanks for stopping by!
