weekend project

I say that this project took a weekend, but really - I bought this coffee table from a garage sale ($5) about two months ago! I didn't take a "before" picture (imagine a two year old went to town with purple paint and something else (!!) under those tiles), so here are the "in-between" and "after" shots. With Hello being what it is, the pictures loaded up in reverse order (no, it was NOT my fault...!!). I sanded, repainted, varnished, and finally finished tiling it today. And now I don't much like the colours....

So when are you going to start your new career - furniture restoration? Your table looks fantastic. You really have talent - first it was patchwork quilts and now it's patchwork coffee tables.

I really like it. Very clever, darling.

That is very clever. I did a tile table like that years ago. It was lots of fun. The colours went out of style and I got rid of it. Darn. I think it might be back in fashion now.

I love these colors you've put together! What a great job you've done! You should be very pleased with it. So stop second guessing yourself and just enjoy your creation!! Clever girl!

Nice table. At least with the different colored tiles the table should match any color plan.
