We had been on the hunt for recycled tiles to create some simple but fantastic coasters like these and the ones I bought for my mom at the fabulous Twist Craft Fair last year from the amazingly talented Zandra Zuarw from zeal.
Serendipitously, my friend Hilary asked for my help to declutter her basement worktable. Hilary does not like to throw anything away, so when I offered to take her excess bathroom tiles off of her hands, she was delighted. And so was I. Check out all of the fun stuff you can use to decorate them: fabric, maps, an old National Geographic book, and beautifully printed paper.
