Etceteras: cork and tile coasters

If you have leftover tile from a house project, here’s an easy way to put them to good use.

These white tiles are the perfect size for coasters. The only problem is that a drink might slide off the coaster if it becomes damp. Solution: use little cork pads. Not only will they keep the drink in place, they’re decorative.

These cork pads are usually used to protect furniture from scratches. They’re placed on the bottom of lamps or other knick knacks.

They come in little packages and are self adhesive. Just peel them off and stick them to your tile.

Don’t forget to put some on the bottom of the tile – to protect your table.
