I already had the felt pads so all I needed to do was head to the nearest Home Depot’s outdoor flooring section. They had a huge selection where I picked out this gray slate one for $1.69. One thing to note is that I noticed the slate comes in different thicknesses. I picked out one that was thinner than the others because it really made a huge difference in weight and I didn’t want one that was too heavy. I also picked a piece that was pretty flat across the top and without any cracks/crevices. When you get home, give it a thorough washing because there was a lot of dirt caked on. I thought about sealing the top of the slate but but all the stone sealants I found were toxic, so I left it as it is.
Then all you have to do is stick the adhesive pads onto the bottom of the slate piece:
