    17 Coaster DIYs Made With 20-Cent Tile

    Nothing screams "adulthood" like a stack of stylish coasters at the ready to put under your friends' PBR cans. These DIY tile coasters will keep your drink budget and coffee table (if you even have one) intact.

    1. Martha-Approved Lace Coasters

    3. Paint Chip Coasters

    Finally put those squirreled-away paint chips to use with this colorful stack. (You're probably going to paint your living room white anyway.)

    4. Patterned Paper Coasters

    You're never going to use that pretty printed scrapbooking paper for actual scrapbooking, either.

    Do what you will with our little blue friend, brush on acrylic paint, and finish off with a coat of polyurethane.

    8. Faux Watercolor Coasters

    Scribble away with permanent markers on these tiny blank canvases and then drip rubbing alcohol for a flower-power watercolor effect. (And maybe make bank selling them on Etsy?)
