Lace Tile

Why should lingerie have a lock on lace? Used as a stencil with metallic paints, the fabric transforms porcelain tiles into softly burnished, intricately patterned trivets and coasters.


  • Lace yardage (or scraps), Chantilly lace trims
  • Tiles, Daltile bullnose glazed ceramic wall tiles, 4 1/4 inches square, semigloss, in White
  • Spray adhesive
  • Enamel metallic spray paint
  • Felt or cork surface protectors


  1. Step 1

    Cut pieces of lace to cover tiles. Mist 1 side of lace with spray adhesive; adhere it to a tile, smoothing any wrinkles.

  2. Step 2

    Spray-paint with your desired color: Hold can 6 inches from surface, sweeping slowly from side to side. Let dry for 1 minute.

  3. Step 3

    Carefully peel off lace; place on another tile (you can reuse one piece 3 or 4 times; you don't need to reapply adhesive).

  4. Step 4

    Let dry. Attach felt or cork surface protectors to the undersides.
