I'm not done with it yet, it still needs to be grouted.  But I am so excited about it I can't wait to share it!!


I have kept my eyes open for an end table to put in the living room.  Last weekend I found one at Goodwill
for an extra 50% off, making it only $6!! I was excited, and I LOVE the shape of it.  I had decided to spray
paint the table the same color I painted some frames a while back since I just love the color so much.  But I
wanted to do something really special for the top.  So I decided to get colored marbles.  the ones that are flat
on one side.  Glue them to the table and grout over top of them.  I painted the top white so the colors would
show extra bright! This morning I glued the marbles, and I plan to grout it very soon.

With the white top


Beads getting glued on


All done
You can see where I ended off to the left where I had used all the colors, leaving only yellow. :\


Almost done... only need to grout it now!




This is the very first time I have grouted anything at all.  I'm happy with it.
It still needs to be sealed, but I have to wait till tonight to make sure the grout has set.

That's really cool, it looks really nice! I wouldn't have noticed the color change if you hadn't pointed it out, it actually looks cool to have some variety instead of a constant pattern. Smiley

And I have to ask, wherever did you find that table? I love the shape of it, it's so cool.
