Today is the day we're suppose to show our "after" projects for Melissa's Procrastinator Party! Well I have a good excuse for not doing my project - we've only had 2 consecutive days with no rain so I couldn't paint the checkerboard pattern on my deck. But.....I have a number of pending projects so I picked another.
Some of you may remember when I painted my buffet yellow I said that I'd like to mosaic the top...Well I did it!
I used what I had. The only thing I purchased was a container of white grout. I had mosaic pieces because a few years ago I was going to do a birdbath and I had started a project covering concrete edgers (which I soon tired of)!
Here's my project!
It would have been better to draw it out in the beginning especially in doing the circles. The center one is a big wonky because I just started gluing down pieces without having any sort of guide.
It's not perfect. I learned a lot while doing it. I didn't plan out what I was going to do ahead of time. I knew I was going to do a big focal point in the center but the rest I just made up as I went along.
I think it came out pretty good for never having done this before! Sometimes you just have to go for it!
