Darkroom and Dearly's California-based curator takes readers into the dazzling DIY world, replete with an array of cooking, photography and jewelry making tips. The blog's 'Homemade Polaroid Coasters' project is easy to replicate on one's own time, and can moreover dress up rooms with minimal, if any, need for investment.
The Homemade Polaroid Coasters require ceramic tiles, printed 3.5 x 5 snapshots, matte glue, brushes, felt and an acrylic spray. These components are of course optional and can be replaced with a multitude of crafty elements, as is the case with most DIY ventures. A simple tweaking of photos can create the optimal backdrop for one's drinks with images of friends, family, food and trips.
