Shabby DIY Coasters and a Star redo

 You wouldn't believe the weather we are having today!!  It is sunny and about 60 degrees.  Gorgeous!!  So I spent this morning out on my driveway spray painting.  I had to take advantage of the Spring weather!

Here is what I painted this morning:

 I have had this star for a bazillion years and it used to be Red.  It was nice, but I needed a change.  I like the blue with my yellow house:)

I like the POP of blue it gives my house!

Ok, now this is not a spray paint project, but I have to show you what I made!  I got the idea over here at Shanty 2 Chic.  If you have never been to their blog, then you are really missing out.  They are some seriously talented girls and have some Fantastic projects on their blog. 

 When I saw their coasters, and they provided a free printable, I had to try it!  I am happy with the way they turned out.  You just have to like the Shabby, aged, distressed look....and well, I do!

  I used a different type of coaster than the girls over at Shanty to Chic, but I think they turned out pretty good!  The cool thing is the only $$ I spent was on the
Polyurethene.  It will be good for lots more projects too!

Now, I need to figure out who to give these to.  My SIL's birthday is coming up, mmmm  maybe.....or I might just keep them for myself!  

Have a great day and see you tomorrow for Friday Frolic!!


  1. Sooo obsessed with everything teal right now! Everything looks great!

  2. I made some too and mine look so much like yours! It was hard to get all the paper off and I was hoping the coat would make it look darker, but like you said great gift for a few dollars!!

  3. Love the star! Super cute!

  4. I love the new color of your star! Cute! I'm feeling a strong need to paint mine now. :)


Thank you so much for your comments...I love them!!
