Sometimes I will spend days and weeks planning a craft project, cutting fabric, thinking about materials, size, shape, the whole nine yards, (is that a golf expression & if so what does it mean). Then there are times like these when I just have a light bulb moment and there is little to no skill involved in the execution. This was one of those times, with so much DIY and heavy lifting to do in the house it was nice to have a break. In my recent post on How To Choose The Right Floor I said that I ordered many samples when I was making a decision. Well fast forward a month or so and we were clearing up ready for another round of building work, (stairs and said floor), when Joe waved the sample in front of me and said, "should I chuck these?" I like that he knows me well enough not to throw anything out before triple checking with me.
Well I had that light bulb moment as I suddenly remembered I had sticky cork pads that I picked up ages ago and had not found the right project to use them....until now.
So here is the how to, pay attention this is the tricky part. Peel the cork pads off their backing and stick onto the back of your stone/slate samples. Once more in case you missed it, that went peel, stick, use.
I was in real need of coasters and I am not a fan of many the designs you can find in stores so this is a real win for me. I have also recently discovered I have a real issue about asking people to use coasters in my home, I guess I just don't want to be 'that' person. I need to get over it as it is not really a bad thing to be that person, the person who says, hey I saved up for this please don't wreck it.
