The pictures are not so great-  This is a mirror for the bathroom. It measures 47 inches tall by 27 inches wide.  The words reading up the lefthand side read... "So, this is what insanity must be like"

I made this at a local mosaic shop where I learned the steps.  They have an interesting method where you lay out your tiles on contact paper exactly how you want it to be when finished.  Then you lay tile tape over the top, cement the item you are going to adhere it to,  take OFF the contact paper and lay the design on the cement, leaving the tile tape on the top until the cement dries.  Once the cement dries you peel off the tile tape and grout. It is pretty slick.

...So...This is what insanity must be like, I thought.....and I could kind of see the appeal.
