There is nothing better than a good set of coasters to protect your furniture from sweaty glasses. I am constantly picking up a new set when the seasons change or just because. It’s the little details in life that make the biggest difference isn’t it? I have been looking at coasters because we have a vintage Henredon Glass top dining table in the studio and if you have ever had a glass top table, it requires constant cleaning to stay sparkling fresh. I think coasters will cut down on the work! Here are some of my favorite coasters. I included a little DIY at the end of the post for fun! I think you will like it!
These would be fabulous in a cabin or mountain retreat. The olive wood is rather masculine, so these would also be nice in a masculine room like a library or a man cave.
I adore these painted ceramic coasters in various colors and patterns.
You know I am all about things be varied. Sets are typically not my jig.

JA is the king of coasters and I am crushing on these today!
Who doesn’t love animals, black, white and gold! Yes!
I love to give these coasters for gifts at Christmas. You know I love a good monogrammed anything but these coasters are truly winners in my book. I get raving thank you notes when I give these as gifts. Makes a great hostess gift too. Stock up now for holiday giving. You know Christmas is just around the corner, so make a few off your list with these fab coasters.
Ok, so I promised a great DIY! If you are in the mood to be a little creative, have I got the project for you! If your house is like my house, you have oodles of wine corks lying around don’t you? I admit, I have a hard time tossing them in the trash. I keep special ones in a plexiglass wine bucket. How about turning them into coasters! Here are two options for cute cork coasters!
I love this idea for coasters. The hardest part would be to cut the corks in half but the good news is if you want to make a matching pair you have two halves! I’m making some next week. How fun would it be to make some for your friends for the holidays out of corks from bottles you have shared? Click Here for details and instructions!
