Are you tired of those boring old coasters that do nothing but protect your furniture from drink rings? Do you want to add some pizzazz to your living room, without breaking the bank?

If you’re looking for a quick and easy DIY project that will add a pop of color to your home decor, look no further than painted tile coasters.

With just a few simple supplies and a little bit of creativity, you can transform plain ceramic tiles into works of art that will protect your furniture from unsightly water rings. From bold geometric patterns to delicate floral designs, the possibilities are endless when it comes to decorating your tile coasters.

Whether you’re hosting a party or simply enjoying a quiet night at home, these charming coasters will add a touch of elegance and sophistication to any space.

Look no further! In just five minutes, you can create a set of painted tile coasters that are both practical and stylish.


  • White 4 x 4 ceramic tiles. I picked mine up at Lowes for 16c a piece! (This may also possibly be the CHEAPEST project EVER!)
  • Painters tape
  • Multi-surface acrylic paint ( I love the Americana multi-surface in the satin finish)
  • Small felt pads (or a piece of felt)


  1. Gather your supplies: Some plain ceramic tiles, acrylic paint, a paintbrush, and some felt pads.
  2. Paint away. Let your creativity shine! Paint your tiles in whatever design you desire. Stripes, polka dots, or even a colorful abstract pattern – the sky’s the limit.
  3. Let it dry. Once you’re done painting, set your tiles aside to dry. This is a good time to grab a snack or catch up on your favorite show.
  4. Protect your furniture. Once your tiles are dry, add some felt pads to the bottom of each one. This will protect your furniture from scratches and keep your coasters in place.
  5. Show them off! Voila! Your painted tile coasters are now ready for use. Impress your friends and family with your artistic flair, and enjoy a refreshing beverage with style.

So why settle for boring coasters when you can create your own custom designs that are as unique as you are? Give painted tile coasters a try and watch as your guests marvel at your artistic talents!

Not only are these coasters easy to make, but they also make great gifts for any occasion. And if you’re feeling extra fancy, you can even add a coat of clear sealant to make them water-resistant.

So go ahead, get your paint on, and let your coasters do the talking.
