I saw this tutorial on Shelley Westerman’s blog, Crazy Wonderful. I made these coasters like Shelley’s with my little sister from Big Brothers Big Sisters of America. Here are Shelley’s.
To make them, you simply take some tiles which you can buy at Lowe’s or Home Depot for anywhere between 14 cents and a dollar.
Then, paint it with chalkboard paint (probably a good idea to rough it up first, as I didn’t and one of my peeled a little).
Glue felt on the back. Felt is about 35 cents for a small sheet which will handle up to six tiles!
Let it cure overnight. Write on it! You’re done.
If you decide to make them, have fun! Super easy! And, a great way to have inexpensive coasters!

I wanted to be sure to compliment Overstock.com. It’s already the first place I go if I’m going to buy retail. I bought the bench (among other things) in my master from them two months ago. Saw it at a lower price this past week. Called and they actually gave me a $45 credit, even though I was way beyond their 10 day price match policy! That’s good customer service. And, well, it never hurts to ask!
