I love this. I'm also a dog lover (mine is a Corgi) and so if I had coasters that looked like my dog that would be so cool. I also love the brown distressed look. These are just awesome. They look like something you'd see for $50 in a boutique!

Thank you both for the comments! You can find these tiles at Home Depot. Just look for the boxes of the tumbled marble and get the ones that are fairly decent looking but darker in color you don't want too much pitting, however you do want some to make them look vintage. I had to go through several boxes to find just the right ones!! Then I repack the boxes with what I want and off I go!!! :) Some tiles require different looks, so you want a different surface, so plan ahead before you go to the store. Also the best feet are the really thick felt pads or cork. I had problems with the thin felt. When the tile became damp, it went through the felt and went on the table and put a mark on it. So you really want to use the thick ones.
