I got this set of 6 wooden placemats at a yard sale for a whopping $0.50... for the SET!!!! I knew exactly what I wanted to do with them too, as soon as I laid my eyes on them!
I absolutely LOVE how they turned out! My 11 y.o. daughter helped me paint these with acrylic paints, and then I finished them with a layer of Mod Podge. The glossy finish made a huge difference and I just LOVE LOVE LOVE them!!!
