Deconstruction & Reconstruction: Mosaic Table Top

P1160349

I’ve been breaking plates from the local Dollar Tree Store, and this is what I have in mind so far.  I’m having a little trouble finding more sky blue plates I’m using to ring the sunflower.  I’ll keep looking.

In the mean time, I’m having a blast breaking plates with a hammer…only to reconstruct the pieces into a new pattern.

These pieces are all made from broken plates.

I’m close to using the tile adhesive to permanently keep the design in place. After 24 hours, I will grout the project with an off white colored grout.  I’ll show you what the finished table top looks like.

Happy Thursday!
