We were given a large antique sideboard by one of our new neighbors soon after we moved in to our new home in 2013. The dining room gets lovely light most of the day, so I quickly began piling plants on it. And then quickly realized I was going to ruin the finish in about 2 seconds flat.

The logical solution was to acquire coasters to put under the saucers. And, the logical solution for the coaster acquisition was to make some. The end result are these bobble stitch plant pot coasters. The thickness of the bobble and density of the Road to China Worsted make for a really lovely, thick padding, and the customization options are endless!
