Glass Coasters

So I have had these photo coasters for several years and after using them quite often they had begun to chip around the edges.

So what’s a girl to do? 
Well, first I removed the backing for the photos and decided to soak these bad boys.

After washing them about 3 times I finally got to just the glass.  The black was actually just super strong vinyl that eventually peeled away.

It was actually really nice glass and had no chips or cracks so I decided to redecorate them :)  I went through my stash of rub ons and decided on some cute roosters.  {Did I ever tell you I LOVE roosters?}

  4. These are so cute, great job! I have some old wooden coasters that need a refresh, I can't decide on what to do though!

  5. I love them too! So cute! I have four glass coasters from a wedding I attended a couple years ago; I may tackle this project myself (it seems easy enough).

  6. No, I didn't know you love roosters! I am going to do a rooster post one day, just for you. :) Love the project, great reuse of materials.

  11. They look great! I gave a set just like those to my parents a few years ago. I'll have to see how they're holding up when I'm over next. I'm a little disappointed to see they chipped on the edges!
