I respect wood. Do you? Or are you one to leave watermarks on tables?
“I respect wood. I revere wood. I’m considerate of wood. “That’s what Larry David said when he was accused of leaving a watermark on Julia Dreyfus’ table. I looove that episode from Curb Your Enthusiasm! So much so that the phrase respect wood keeps replaying in my head since watching that episode. And you will find me randomly asking others if they respect wood. ;)
Well I decided I needed to make something that respected wood. Nothing more suiting than coasters, right! These are no ordinary coasters…
These coasters tell you to respect wood.
Not only that, they also tell you how to respect wood… use this.
To make these coasters, all I did was simply paint 4″x4″ wood tiles white, and dry brushed them with gold. I painted the sides gold as well. Once the paint was dry, I sanded them a bit. Then I stamped each one with the phrases. Lastly I finished them off with acrylic sealant and added felt pads at the bottom.
Kept simple to do the job they were intended to do… respecting wood!
The next time you are about to put your beverage down directly on a hardwood table, remember Larry and remember me… and ask yourself if you respect wood! So do you? ;)
