Our outdoor living room project started last year with the DIY Pallet Coffee Table Makeover. We've been fine tuning it this year with things like the Wooden Planter turned Beverage Cooler until we get to the biggest part of the project, our DIY Pergola build.

In the meantime, we are enjoying the coming together of this little outdoor oasis! In order to celebrate these small victories, plus Father's Day is right around the corner, we decided to use a few more of those cedar plank leftovers to make metallic dipped wooden coasters.

Items needed:

  • Americana Decor Metallics 8oz - 24K Gold
  • Americana Decor Metallics 8oz - Pewter
  • Americana Decor Metallics 8oz - Tin
  • Thin Wood or Prefab Wood Coasters
  • Jig Saw (if cutting your own)
  • Template
  • Pencil
  • Sander or Sandpaper
  • Painter's Tape
  • Small Deep Bowl (for dipping)
  • Adhesive-Backed Cork Roll
  • Scissors
  • Drying Rack

Instructions:

These will come in handy at our annual Dad's Day BBQ and they make the perfect gift too! Here's how to make your own:

We used leftover cedar planks for our project, but any thin planks of wood will do. I drew out our coasters by tracing out the bottom of a small planter onto the wood planks.

To keep the wood from splintering, I sandwiched two planks onto top of one another, secured them with tape and cut them out from the top. Then, using a sander, I sanded the edges smooth. The coasters from the bottom plank will be the smoothest and the least likely to splinter around the edges. The top disks can either be smoothed with sandpaper, discarded or used for another purpose if they splinter too much.

Tape a small section of the coaster off with painter's tape.

Pour paint into a small plastic container and dip each disk in until the exposed are is covered with paint. Then tap gently and thump to remove excess paint and any bubbles.

Hang or place on rack to dry. Catch any drips with a very gentle swipe of a paint brush from the bottom.

Once dry to the touch (approx 12 hours) remove tape.

Allow approximately 24 hours to thoroughly dry before handling further.

Using the same template, cut disks from cork and adhere to the back of your coasters.
