Wow it looks so amazing!!  Shocked And this is all donw with marbles
but with a mosaic design. I've seen this done before in Mexico at one of
the breakfast restaurants down at the beach. I think it gives it a real colourful, tropical look. Well done i say.

beautiful.   I've been wanting to do this.  we desperately need a table on our balcony.   I'm doing it with pieces of mosaic though - I bought a small set of dishes at a rummage sale that are such a pretty pink/salmon color.  I was thinking of breaking those up and maybe using one other color - I bet I could find a bunch of black dishes too...as a little accent. 

My only problem is I can't find a table that isn't already $50 or more.  And most of the ones I've seen already have a mosaic design on them - makes it kinda pointless Wink

Very nice! I did a mosaic table last summer for my bedside table (although it's longer than any other bedside table I've seen). Although I used grout I'd suggest resin, I think it would hold up better.

That looks really great, girl!  I bet that was a tedious task, but obviously well worth it.  Bravo.   Kiss

Chelsea, I don't know if you're in/near a major city, but you may want to try http://www.craigslist.org or http://www.freecycle.org. People literally give away furniture all the time - it amazes me. One man's trash...

The other thing is that it's also coming up on garage sale time.  Grab your newspaper, and your coffee mug, and hit the streets EARLY!  Check around with local churches, too.  They sell some of the BEST stuff.

That is really cool!  Your hard work was definatly worth it.  I'm kind of new to the crafting world, but um...what is resin and grout?  Undecided

Resin is a clear substance that you can use to cover a table to make it look like it has glass on it.It dries hard and is thick. Grout is what they use to do your tiles in your bathroom, usually white, but you can use a coloring for it as well.
