I’m on a roll here with black & gold after the last folding chair makeover. I can’t help it, they just look so great together. If black is a bit harsh for you try a different colour, gold goes well with pretty much anything. So I was at a friend’s house and they were just finishing up a reno with some nice marble tiles and knowing that I’m such a scavenger & DIY’er asked me if I wanted the extra? I’ve been looking at buying some Custom coasters but I couldn’t refuse free tiles! I immediately had a vision for these geometric gold & black coasters. Check out how I brought my little light bulb moment to life.
So they started as pretty basic beige (blah!) marble tiles and now live on as stylish and trendy geometric coasters.
What you need for this project:
– square marble coasters (cork would also work)
– spray glue
– gold leaf (or gold paint)
– masking/painters tape
– black paint (or colour of your choice)
– clear acrylic sealer
You can always also just choose to pick one of these patterns and make them all the same. Or if you you’re a neutral kinda person you can even forget about using a paint colour and just leave the natural marble exposed, it will look great with the gold.
Make up your own patterns or use even more colours if you want. You get the idea. It’s an easy way to incorporate a trendy colour into your space without commitment.
