Hello my friends,
I have had a bit of fun placing tiles.
Last week I headed South to get more items for our next estate sale. We decided that we would do something fun
before getting to work.
We started with this.
Lots of pretty pieces of broken glass. When we've done tile projects before we have placed the dishes in a towel and broke them with a hammer. We found some tile cutters in Aunt Bunnies estate. They were great for cutting perfect pieces!
They remind me of beach glass.
We also used these. Old shovels and tile adhesive, again from Bunnies estate,
We spread the adhesive on with a knife and started
Wipe off any adhesive that's on the tiles, or that is sticking up high. You want to leave room for the grout.
I chose a round shovel and Julie and Dolly chose a square one.
We let them dry outside over night. The next morning we spread a layer of white grout over the entire shovel.
Dolly is using a wet sponge to wipe off the excess.
Then we let them dry over night again.
We had an extra shovel so I made one for another sister.
I've placed mine out on our front porch.
I've been debating as to whether or not I want to add some ribbon or something fun hanging on it.
It makes me smile each time I walk up to the front door.
I love placing tiles in more ways than one. I play Words on my phone with a few of my blog friends. It's another fun way to connect with them. Some of them are so good at placing tiles! :)
I will be sharing with these fun parties:
