I am sooo inspired.  I'm surprised nobody thought of what I'm about to suggest (maybe because it wouldn't work?)....what if you made one of these mats to line the bottom of a shower with.  You would have to use a base mat with holes so that all the water would drain through.  Also, maybe it would help prevent long hair from clogging the drain.  Does this seem like it could work?  If it would, I want to try it!  Let me know what all you craftsters think.

Wow I want to make one.  I like the idea someone had about using the little glass half-marbles...that would look nice together.  I think using a clear placemat or something like that would probably work too.  Great ideas ...keep em coming!

I have so many ideas, and so little time!

it's incredible the way the rocks in your picture all fit together.

like they're made for each other.

Thanks for this useful and interesting thread. I am about to embark on making my own River Rock mat but I'm trying to do it slightly differently in that I am going to glue the rocks to an existing thin mat I found at Ross Dress for Less--I think the mat cost me $3.99 and the river rocks I have bought so far are from Michaels Arts and Crafts, where if you use a 40% off coupon, cost about $4.00 a bag (they are very fine smooth quality and are the right--larger--size I feel. I also may get some rocks at Walmart to mix in--they had some nice smooth river rocks as well in a large size. The total cost for the project should be around $24 but that still beats the price of the pricey ones I've seen online and I think mine is going to be much more striking.    A Brazilian friend of mine is married to an expert tile installer and she thought any good tile/carpet mastec would be a good adhesive to use.   I was going to use a Liquid Nails for outdoor use.  I'll let you know how it comes out and will post a picture as well if this site allows me to do so.

so cool. Would it work if you glues them to a boot saver? The plastic tray that you place your shoes when you take them off to enter the house

I can't wait to make one of these!  Thank you for the tips and things you encountered in your sharing this. I can't wait to feel the warm rocks below my feet! Wink
