This was a coffee table that my mother-in-law gave us and shortly after we got it a few years ago we thought it would be a great idea to tile it. We finally got around to it about 6 months ago and it is pretty much finished, just needs a few more clear coats over the tiles and the paint touched up in a few places.













In total there are 401 tiles, we used mostly Nintendo and Super Nintendo characters and some from other old school systems like Atari, Genesis, PC games, etc... Each image had to resized and the background color changed, we then printed them, cut them out and glued them to the tiles and then coated them with mod podge 3 times prior to grouting and placing them on the table.

Overall I think it took about 4 months, but it was the first project we worked on together Smiley

The pillows were actually amazing gifts from swaps! The frog Mario was from Retro_Rose in the Mario swap and the question mark block was from quaggy in the Crafty Detective swap <3
