49 - How To Amp Up Boring Trivets

Since the craft room is no longer a craft room, it's becoming the nursery bit by bit, it can be hard to find the energy to dig through packed up boxes and bins to find supplies for even the simplest DIY. Luckily I had some painter's tape around from painting the dining room trim and the little drawers with my acrylic paint just happened to be the easiest thing to reach in the closet where I've stored all my supplies.
Needing to express a little creativity and spruce up the plain cork trivets we picked up Ikea here's what I came up with:

Step 1. Buy some cheap Ikea cork trivets.

Step 2. Use painter's tape and scissors to mark off a design.

Step 3. Paint. I used basic acrylic craft paint. (You could also use spray paint.)

Step 4. Once dry, peel off the tape. Voila!
