Z Gallerie Inspired || $5 Fabulous Coasters

And our second $5 Fabulous Projects is...Z Gallerie Inspired Coasters!
Check out our very first $5 fabulous which was our {Garage Glam Stairs}
OK back to business...has anyone been to Z Gallerie lately?   Maybe it's me...but I was certainly diggin' the goods a little more than normal this last visit!   I was so in love I was creepily taking pictures whilst trying to not be noticed by the sales people...yup I'm that girl who turns over the coasters and yells "TWENTY DOLLARS!" and then immediately takes a picture so I can DIY.
So here are a few of the awesome accessories that I loved! 
 
There were many more lovelies but many were non-DIY hopefuls and what's the fun in that?!!!
 So here are my Z Gallerie Inspired...well, actually more like "knock off" Coasters.
Z Gallerie Coaster  - $20
My{DIY}Habits Coasters - $2.30 
($2.30 because I already owned all the other material except the coasters) 
{DIY} Z Gallery Coasters Supplies and Price List:
MDF Coasters - Ben Franklin - $2
Craft Tape - (already owned but a roll is typically about $3ish)
Primer - (already owned)
Gold Leaf Paint - (already owned)
White High Gloss Spray Paint -  (already owned but a can typically costs about $4)
Polyurethane Spray Paint Finish - (already owned)
1 Square of Felt - $0.30
Super Glue - (already owned)
Total Cost for me: $2.30

{DIY Z} Gallery Coasters How To:
This ones crazy simple...just follow the pictures!
 
after I pealed off the tape I touched up with some white acrylic paint..totally optionalOnce dry I sprayed 2 coats of a polyurethane spray paint.
Then I added some felt to the backside...securing with super glue.
Aside from my killer thrift store coasters that I found last week...this is the first complete set of coasters that I have ever owned...I feel so mature!
I have a couple other Z Gallerie inspired projects that I we'll be back with next week.  So until then have a wonderful weekend and don't forget to hop on back here next week...I'll love you for it!!

  4. lol - I take pictures of stuff too and figure out a way to DIY them. I do not blame you for making your own coasters. I would not pay $20.00 for coasters. Yours turned out lovely. :)
