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.

Before


Getting painted


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.

Wow! What unique and lucky find! The shape is so cool! I LOVE what you've done with it... absolutely beautiful! I really want to paint some of the thrifty finds we have in our house, but hubby gets a little freaked every time I mention it.  Wink

Niiiiiiice! The top makes the whole table, IMO. It is great! Might I suggest adding a round glass top? (You can pick one up pretty cheap at Walmart). I think it would stand up better to drinks and whatnot. This side table is so yummy looking.... I mean, like candy. I want to lick the top, LOL!

I thought about getting one, but I also thought about putting a coat or 2 of lacquer because we are Military and
I don't want to have to worry too much about my stuff getting broken.  :\

This is awesome! I love what you did with top, using the flat sided marbles. It really makes it "pop," and I'm sure will make a complimentary and conservation-starting piece to your living area. Love the GW!!
