Puppy Love Hand Painted Glass Coaster Set

This set of 4 coasters hand been hand painted with black, abstract paw prints and white bones to brighten up any pet lovers day.  Each coaster measures 4″ square and has been fitted with rubber feet to protect your furniture and comes as a set of 4.

Each piece has been hand painted on the reverse side which means that the paint has been put on the bottom of the glass, starting with the details and working backwards so that the design shows through the glass.  This also means that your drink will not scratch the paint off the coaster so you will have you usable art for years to come.

If you are interested in another design, or maybe an entire table service to match your coasters, please use the contact us button and let me know.  I would be happy to work out a special order for you.

What is Your Vision

I love it when customers run across Makin the Best Of It and find a pattern that they love!  Only problem is it is on the wrong glass….though that is a problem we can take care of!

A new Canadian friend had a set of glasses that she loved but, unfortunately, broke two of the four glasses.  These were special and she was unable to just buy replacements so she contacted me!  She sent me a quick photo of the remaining glass and requested a set to replace them with.

I was unable to find the exact glass, these are dainty little things, but was able to find a set that she was happy with.  After painting some lush red strawberries these little treasures are on their way to their new home.
