I’ve accumulated a lot diys on my Pinterest boards and thought that as I try out some of the projects, I could also offer some insight on how well the diy came out here. Whenever I work on a diy, I’ve always noticed that there are always things I’d want to do differently the next time around. There are many Paint Chip Coasters diys circulating the internet, but the crafty cpa has a very easy to follow tutorial. Here are some notes I jotted down . . .
I made a big mistake by not allowing the acrylic spray to dry completely, so one of my tiles has a round indentation on its surface from the glass I propped on it. Note to self: diys are more successful when you’re patient!
Another thing I noticed is that the acrylic coating does crack once it dries, so it’s important to add several coats so your coasters can withstand the perspiration from your glasses. PS. the cracks will show even after several coats, so just roll with the punches! One more thing to consider, the lighter the paint chip color the more debris and stains show up on its surface, so you may want to consider picking darker hues for this project.
