ok hope this goes today have been trying to post for 2 days :(
..this is the first use of the wet grinder/sander looking pretty good then it was covered again with a very thinned out layer of portland to fill in some of the airholes you could do this as many tiles you wish to get your look even adding color if you wished .

we will embrace the perfection of the imperfection on ours.

Gorgeous job! I've been reading about doing the same. Do you tumble the glass that you use on the counter tops?

I too would love living close to denimangle, the smartest, most talented,most creative and hardest working of any one person I've ever heard of. Let's add brave (will try anything) to the list. Deni, you are to be admired by all and probably most of us are jealous of your many talents. I love everything I've ever seen you post. A big thank you for sharing.

Awesome! Wished I had seen this before we did our new outdoor kitchen counters. We had leftover tiles from floors and counter tops but not enough to use whole so hub's smashed them.

I've been creating our outdoor counter tops for 3 yrs and opted for a similar mosaic idea! I'd like to get back to them this summer and hope they finish up as good as yours bigred!
