{ DIY Indoor/ Outdoor Rustic Wood Coasters }

What a gorgeous day it's been!! The weather was perfect for some much needed sunny patio DIY! A few day's ago my dear husband came home with these cute little fresh wood slices..& well, you know I had to DIY them somehow! I decided to make cute little coasters with some simple chalk paint & a little monogram action!  Come see how I made these for close to nothing!!

These are the easiest indoor/outdoor coasters!! Grab some wood slices { free } & dust them of any dirt etc..Use some stick on letters & place them wherever on the wood you want to monogram! I used a sponge brush & just 'feathered' the paint on. When you're painting make sure NOT to paint the wood perfect or drench the wood..remember they're suppose to be rustic so leaving some natural grain lines etc..are essential! After the chalk paint dries { 15 mins in the sun } then distress them with a Brillo pad or brush. Dust off any dirt & or paint again & finally use a clear cream wax to seal the coasters!

I love the color { It's a mix of two Americana Decor colors I customized }! The grain shines through perfectly!

These coasters are perfect for indoor or outdoor use & bonus they're durable for parties & bonfires etc..

I went with a simple M & P, but you could really do anything with these..& for close to nothing! 

I sure hope you all are enjoying this lovely northern weather today! I joked with my mom I think in the two hours I was working on these little buggers & photographing I got burnt already haha! Front & back patio decor & DIY is coming soon!!
