DIY Pallet Coasters


Hey friends,  I'm back today with another quick and easy pallet project.  If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook you may remember a picture I posted last week of a few pallet projects I was working on.  Believe it or not, these coasters are not one of them!  I'm working on three other projects, one being a Christmas decoration that I'll share after Thanksgiving.  The other two projects are in the works and I'm excited to hopefully share them in the next couple weeks.

After cutting up the pallets for my other projects, I was left with a few scrap pieces that were the perfect size for coasters.



 I started by cutting all the pieces to equal sizes then giving them a good sanding.
I then stenciled each coaster with numbered stencils and regular craft paint. 


To keep the ink from smearing and to seal the coasters, I gave them a couple coats of poly.



I now use them on my side table that has been getting completely destroyed by my kids.  A few months ago I painted the table with white chalk paint, which was definitely not the smartest move.  Even with applying the wax, the table has stains and marks that cannot be removed.  I guess a table makeover is in the near future.

If you liked these coasters you may also like the photo coasters that I made last Christmas.
