I had this ill fitting lid kicking around holding scrapbooking scraps. When I upgraded to a cut out milk jug I needed to find a new purpose for the lid or throw it out. I recently painted the top of my small filing cabinetwhich sits beside my laptop and I used to always put my coffee on it, leading to stains. I didn’t want to stain my new paint job so I settled on the idea of making a coaster.
I spray painted the thing with a white primer then painted the sides blue. I crocheted a long chain of blue garden twine that Hubby had bought me to tie up my tomatoes and hot glued it down in a circular fashion both on top and inside the lid. Voilà, coaster!
