Knack for Mosaics

Knack for Mosaics
Achin’ for some mosaic-in’?  Don’t you fret, because I’ve got a few mosaic makeovers coming your way!
First, this lovely dresser from Emily at Running in Heels.  It didn’t start out that way, no sir.  It began as an overly glossy charmless and chunky little thing in no one’s favorite color: hunter green. (I apologize if this is your favorite color.)  Emily gave it all kinds of character with mismatched knobs and a distressed blue, but let’s talk about that top!  What a cool idea to mosaic it and then frame it!   File that under Things My Brain Would Have Never Suggested To Me.

We’ve seen a lot of Meg’s fabulous work on Meg and Mum’s, but what’s Mum been up to? I’ll tell you!  She’s been making a beautiful mosaic on what was formerly a plain jane lazy susan!  Do you know what inspired her?  You’ll never guess, so I’ll tell you again!  Her mousepad! 

And finally, have you been searching for a clever way to incorporate your scratched CDs into your holiday decor?  Me neither.  But now you can!  And you should!  It’s like saving the earth and spreading holiday cheer at the same time. Total double karma points.
From Caitlin at Hardly Housewives.

Thanks for sharing ladies!

    I have hundreds of CD’s that I need to get rid of…like how they were up cycled into Christmas decor!

    Many cute things!

    (Psst…it’s “mosaic” — I think some letters got switched on ya.)

    Although not my style (the 1st dresser) I think it looks fabulous and how very creative to use different knobs. Well done!

    Thanks Neba Nebet! I swear I had it spelled the right way first and then stupid blogger spellcheck told me I didn’t!
