Coaster project

My daughter refinished a table. It turned out beautifully and she didn't have any coasters so I wanted to make her a set. These are cheap tiles from Lowes with paper and a clear dimensional sealer. I was browsing through my HUGE paper collection (kind of embarrassing) and I happened upon this paper. I don't know why but it caught my fancy. I guess it is the nostalgic feel.

I made a set of 6. The pattern tended to repeat when I cut the paper so here are three examples.

I like the fading in this paper, looks vintage to me. I did put some ink distressing along the edges (surprise).

I painted the back to make it look more finished then put felt circles to protect the furniture.
