This was in my son's garage for years. It was originally a butcher block table. But after having tools and car parts stored on it the butcher block warped and split. My son had it ready for bulk trash and I rescued it. Tightened up the legs, attached a piece of plywood with 1/4 round shoe moulding to frame the top, painted lime green and Mosaic'd

Wow!! looks great, I've been collecting odd tile pieces for years hoping to do something like this, but I don't know where to start, do you use plaster, cement or what?

I just used wood glue to glue the pieces down and then grouted.

If it's something that will be outside, planter, stepping stone. I used liquid nails to adhere the pieces.

I love looking at the pictures of your new table. I think it is so beautiful. How long does it take to become a "professional" Fish_knees? I would be so proud to have that in my house for all to see. I keep saying, "One of these days...".

That was an awesome creative idea buddy, you have given a new look to the entire table, now it can also be used as bedside table for the room in a house.

I really like this!!

I have been thinking about trying to mosaic something for some time. I recently found this site and saw many good ideas. I just know when I figure out what to use and how to do it, I will have to attempt a bowling ball. I have also been thinking about a small-medium table on wheels, which I could move wherever I wanted to work on crafts. I think this is a great idea to do both. I can always find an old table and just take it from there.

Thanks Fish Knees! (love your "name" too)

I almost forgot what a beautiful table you made, glad I came back to look at it. Have you made any more beautiful pieces?
