I applied a brown stain

What do you mean by applying a brown stain?, could it be made out of black tea?
btw they are beautiful things in your page Smiley

WARNING! JOKE IN BAD TASTE BELOW!
Well, if it comes from a bathroom tile, I wouldn't be asking about the "brown stain" Lips sealed

I have been thinking of doing this exact thing for my MIL for her birthday.  Perhaps a silly question, but I'm new to the crafty world... How did you get the images on the coaster??  Are they printed on clear paper?  Stenciled?  I'd love to know!

 Cheesy

There is a type of paint called "stain."  It comes in various colors and can be purchased at any hardware store.

 Huh  I guess what I'm having trouble figuring out is how you got the "k" and the quote onto the coaster.  Did make a stencil for the "k"?  Did you print it out on to something and then glue it on to the coaster and then paint over it?  I'm wanting to do a bunch of coasters for MIL with a variety of quotes.  I was trying to figure out how to get them on without doing it by hand... i.e. printing onto transparency and laying that on the coaster, etc.  Like I said, total newbie-- obviously need help.

Hi Corey~

Just print off the font you want on regular paper.  Cut to the size you need on the tile.  I used Modge Podge to glue it to the tile.  Then paint the stain over the top and wipe off the excess.  When it's dry apply a couple of coats of clear. 

Hope that helps!

Cheers!

That helps!  I was trying to make it more difficult by finding marbly/weathered tile and then putting the quotes on that.  But, it looks like you just printed it on paper and then made that look weathered.  Have I got it now???

Thanks,
Corey
