Tegestology :: When In Doubt, Use A Coaster

Thursday, November 01, 2012

decoupaged coastersDid your most recent party left lots of watermark rings on your expensive wooden furniture?
Or maybe you forgot to use a coaster for your cold beverage, and now there is a ring and a ticked off wife. :p
All my guests might label me a scrooge but I think that you should always use a coaster on wood surfaces. Follow this drill especially when in you are the guest. It should become a force of habit, almost like second nature.
Trust me, no one likes water rings on their tables. Cleaning up all those water rings will be cumbersome, more often tricky and sometimes expensive too. So, Instead of turning into a ‘buzz kill’ who keeps following your guests all around at every party and quietly slipping coasters under their glasses, just consider this simple solution…

BUY COASTERS!! Buy a lot of coasters, in various sizes, shapes and materials.


Do people still use coasters?
Why wouldn't they? Drinks still contain liquid. Liquids still leave a mark on wood. Even the most careful person can't compete with nature – i.e. condensation.
So, here i present to you my new collection of handmade, upcycled wooden decoupaged coaster sets. These are all made out of rejected or repurposed wood pieces.
