Mosaic Table Recycled Project
Here's the table I bought from a garage sale for $2. It was missing the glass top and was a drab brown color. Wonder husband cut a new wood top for me and I painted it my fave color, black. I saw these great tile mixes at Home Depot that were the perfect colors for our house. However they were $10 each and I needed between 10-15. Not happening. So, I bought 5 ceramic floor tiles that were the same colors (good luck finding a sold black, non marble floor tile, btw). I spent an afternoon with a hammer whacking the little buggers up. Good therapy for me.....not sure the neighbors agree!! Then I just did a random pattern using all 5 tiles. I finished it up with gray grout. I'm pretty happy with it! :::smiles::: Total cost for the project was around $25. Now when we sit on the front porch in the black rocking chairs we have a table for the phone, a good book and a glass of sweet tea!! Want to come visit??
All my ART comes from the hands, heart and mind of a Mixed Media
ARTist. I am a native of rural, central Illinois and am a recent and
grateful transplant to Central Florida. After 25 years......I have finally come "Home".
Of all the gifts I have received, God blessed me best, the day He
instilled a passion to create in my soul. Time spent in the Studio
in praise to Him and up to my elbows in glass, paper, beads, glitter and glue is the saving grace of my life. For this I am forever grateful. Shelly Rae
