Everyday, sometime during the morning or evening I can find my husband in the den on the computer. I finally goy tired of the phone book he was using for a trivet.
All you need is a plain white tile, paint chips, paper cutter, brush and decoupage, polyurethane, some felt and a glue gun. I say it shamelessly, I hoard paint chips.
The chips that came striped with multiple colors was perfect. I used my paper cutter and ended up with various sizes. I was going for a geometric design that would imitate the den rug. I used decoupage glue to secure the strips, then followed up with two coats over the top. Once dry, I added a couple coats of poly to seal it. I also glued felt to the back of the tile.
The geometric pattern isn’t a perfect match to the rug, but I still like it.
This was quick to do and the most important thing is my husband loved it! Do you make your own trivets? Do you hoard paint chips?
