Mosaic Makers

Mosaic Makers
If you think that cutting out, placing and grouting tons of tiny tile scraps to make a mosaic over an old table is a lot more work than simply re-painting one, let me set the record straight. You’re right. But woo, doesn’t it look nice!? Check out the following tiled beauties:

Caitlin from Caits Creates redid a boring table with pre-cut sheets of tile and the help of her mom! I love how it turned out! This also seems like a good way of protecting your tables if say, you own an eating establishment, or also if you own small children.


 Better After reader Danielle just happens to work as a designer in a tile showroom, so she had access to lots of scraps and broken tiles. I bet if you asked nicely, your local showroom would share some of their scraps too. Danielle turned this $10 Goodwill sewing table a nifty nautical number!


 And finally, Chris (aka the Mum) from Meg and Mum’s took what I would have guessed to be some kind of barbecuing apparatus and worked her mosaic magic! Fantastic! I don’t know much about making mosaics, but I do know you can make your own tile pieces by smashing old plates, the more colorful the better. Yet another reason to head to Goodwill!

    I love the barbecue table! I’d never have the patience to work with all those little tiles, but all these ladies did an amazing job!

    Wow I like that! Got me thinking, but worried I can’t pull it off. I love the pattern on the last one.

    Oh I am so glad you posted this. I just found a table that is missing the glass insert and I have been wanting to try mosaic.
