Table Mat Tutorial!

Ever wondered what to do with those orphan blocks lying around?

How about turning one into a Non-Slip Table Mat?

  1. Looks very handy and in those lovely summery colours would be great for your patio table when dining alfresco in our beautiful summer heat and sunshine - one day. Nice use of orphans blocks.

  5. Love that idea! I have just spray painted 2 storage cubes that we use as a coffee table so need something to protect them with now!

  6. Such a great idea. My orphan blocks tend to become cushions, virtually anything looks good made up that way. x
