Today is our fourth month of the ‘2015 Inspired challenge‘ and Crate and Barrel is the store we are being inspired by.  Each month, four other bloggers and I pick items from our selected store and try to recreate them for a lesser cost.  So far we have done AnthropologieThe Land of Nod and last month we did CB2.  So, today am here to share my Colorful Striped Coasters!

There is something that draws me to the clean modern look of stripes.  I loved these Crate and Barrel set of four Vaughn Coasters and knew I could easily create a similar look for much less.  I don’t often do primary colors, so I still went with bright and bold but a palette more to my taste preferences.  #diytotherescue

Colorful Striped Coasters compareOnce again this month, I already owned all the materials needed for this project.  So, I did a little happy dance at the ZERO price tag.  However, if you were to buy these few craft items it would cost around $8 total.

SUPPLIES needed for Colorful Coasters:

Four Acrylic Paints / Set of 4 Cork Coasters / Martha Stewart Patterning Tape / Brush

Using my Martha Stewart patterning tape, I taped off half of each coaster.  I used a spare piece of tape to help get the spacing evenly the same.

Then, using my different shades of blue and the yellow, I gave each coaster two coats of paint.  Right after the second coat of paint was done, I removed the tape (while it was still wet).  This insured clean straight lines.
