Re purposed Vinage Maps Revisited

13 Jun

In a previous post I talked about how I had found a very appropriate vintage map and given it a new lease of life as a gift for Dad.

The wooden coasters have sat staring at me. They didn’t look finished but I hadn’t quite decided what I was going to do. I knew that they shouldn’t be actually used as coasters. It would be a real shame for them to end up with coffee rings on them. But what to do?

In true Blue Peter style it was time to bust out the string, staple gun and tape measure.

I measured the coasters so they were and equal distance apart,  laid my string along each side of the back and then fired in some staples. Very satisfying. My staple gun is my new best friend

There we have it. Re purposed map for Fathers Day on a shoe string (sorry), white parcel string.
