Just Coasting

30 Apr 15

I recently bought a coffee table on ebay – a 1960’s G Plan coffee table, and it was an absolute bargain! Not only that, but the seller dropped it off for me (bonus!).

It needs a little work as there’s a patch where the previous owners sanded through the veneer, but with a little love it’s going to be perfect.

To keep it nice and mug-ring-free after I’ve lovingly restored it, I want some pretty coasters. Turns out there aren’t many coasters out there that are worth getting excited about… shocking, I know!

If like me you’re a tiiiiny bit of a neat freak and also know that it’s the little details that matter, here are a few coasters that I found during my search…
