Small setbacks and imperfections aside, my table-tiling
project was a success. Sure, half of my short, tiny square tiles
were buried forever under the grout, and yes, the legs still
wobble a little. But I now have a unique piece of furniture that
I love. Despite all its flaws, thereís a little part of me
that beams every time I look at that table Ė Iím proud of
the fact that I made it. Thereís something about
furnishing your digs with homemade treasures thatís just so
much more satisfying than living in a cookie-cutter, Pottery
Barn catalogue home.
on a Theme
My friend was inspired by my mosaic coffee table, and made two
end tables for her boyfriend. Instead of putting random pieces of
tile together, there was a method to her madness. She created
designs, and one can be used as a chessboard.
