I find mosaic is actually really calming to do...like coloring (which I also love doing)...except I'm coloring with tiles.

That looks awesome!  It was so worth the effort!!!

Ummm...I can't remember...a silicon based glue...like G6000 or something like that.

I'm not going to seal this...I'm going to buy a glass top at Walmart for it. That way I can clean it real easy.

I love mosaic...this is my biggest mosaic project...but I look around and see so many posibilities in my house. You seriously can mosaic anything.

That's funny, I made a mosaic table top a couple of years ago. It was a rooster, I don't know why. But it was bad ass! I just mosaic-ed a piece of masonite the same size as the top of my table, so I could remove it if I wanted. I used liquid nails, what did you use? Then i grouted in black too and sealed it.

Inspired by this forum and the marble magnets...I went to JoAnn's to buy some flat marbles.

Only, the didn't have any at all. GRRR!

I did however find these neat little self-adhesive acrylic bubbles. They were in the scrapbooking isle and I guess are used for decorations in scrapbooks. The package had two sizes...medium and large. I snatched them up and went home.

They were very easy to use. I just pressed the clear bubble over my picture, cute the excess paper off and glued felt on the back. Finally, I used my hot glue gun (I LOVE I LOVE I LOVE) to glue the magnets on.

Ta-Da...a perfect V-day gift for my Irish-American boyfriend. He's way into Celtic stuff...and so I thought these would make a nice addition.

Sorry they are so blurry.


The other advantage to these little bubbles is that they are very light weight. So...the magnets don't have to be mega-strong.

Well...here's my first post!

I started working on this mosaic a couple of years ago...but have finally finished it. I used one of those cheap, particle board tables and broken mirror. I bought my tiles off of ebay. Then painted the legs with a random stripey pattern. I used black grout as well.  I'm SO happy with it. I plan on using it for a bar when I have friends over for drinkies. I could also detach the legs and hang the table top up on the wall as a piece of art.

Anyway, the tables are so affordable...I encourage anyone to give them a try!

Sorry my pictures are blurry.
