Have you guys heard of Habitat for Humanities ReStore? It’s an amazing place to find project supplies and items for home projects!
My local ReStore is chuck full of amazing finds! Salvaged doors for $5, closet doors for $5, hardware, drawers, and tile!
A few months back I went looking for tile for my kitchen back splash. While looking through the endless selection of tile I came across a box of salvages vintage green tile that I fell in LOVE with! There wasn’t enough for my kitchen project but for 50 cents a square foot I just couldn’t leave them behind! I gathered them up and took them home hoping that a project would come to mind sooner then later!
Well, I still haven’t thought of the perfect project but in the mean time I wanted to put them to work. Why not create a set of coasters in the mean time.
Because these were salvaged tiles and removed from a home, they each have left over grout on the edges.
A little sand paper is all it takes to get the grout off!
Add a little felt and adhere with hot glue…
Sweet! Coasters For 11 cents each! I’ll co-sign that all day long!
Salvage discount stores like the ReStore are a gold mind! Check to see if you have one near you and get shopping already!
So HELP!!! What should I do with the rest of my vintage tile stash?
P.s. That yummy drink I have in my glass is Ocean Spray White Cran-Peach and it’s beyond delish! Favorite Summer drink hands down!
