Scavenged marble coasters.
Even though our coffee table cost $15 and really needs to be refinished (yes, still), I’m a coaster kind of person. I’m just not into having puddles of water collecting under our glasses. I’ve never understood the appeal of hard, non-absorbant coasters, though, and have always preferred the simple cork ones from IKEA.
Unfortunately, Fritz also likes cork coasters. As in, likes to shred them into tiny pieces, leaving us wondering if he ate any and if he needs to go to the hospital. Seriously, if you turn your back for 10 seconds, he’s eating a coaster.
Well, we found the PERFECT coasters last weekend at our favorite store in Beacon, Iron Fish. They’re marble (which nicely matches our fireplace), and they’re LINED WITH CORK! All the durability of a hard coaster, with all of the absorbancy of cork. Wheee! Plus, they stack nicely.
Sorry, Fritz. You’re going to have to go back to chewing on the chairs instead.
