My mother-in-law has just had her bathroom re-decorated and was in need of a new mirror. As the size of the bathroom is not large, I wanted to use a large mirror but I deliberately kept the border quite slim so that it added interest to the room without being overbearing.
These were two simple, and very quick pots, to mosaic. This one is made with broken white tiles (I use thinner tiles as they are easier to break).
I really like the multi-toned tile sheets that you can buy (these came from Topps Tiles and I used about two sheets) which give a natural, random effect. As the shape of the pot tapers I decided to cut the tiles intro strips and spiralled them around the pot, then grouted them with an outdoor grout.
Shortly after we had moved house and we were still without broadband, I was getting a bit restless and started looking for a new project. We had been given a glass-top garden table and it was just crying out to be decorated with mosaic. Using my favourite blue tiles I created the outline for the pattern and then filled the spaces with broken white tiles, mosaic tiles and broken mirror.
