We have two simple and fast easy projects commin’ your way today! I’m only posting two today because I’m not sure when I will get back on here!
First off, Ed and I have always admired tiled tables. The ones that only have a few tiles here and there! However, I am not all too keen on the idea of taking a router to my table. The thought of having grout lines on my table for food to get caught in just does not make me happy, either. I really wanted something that I can just put hot pots on and not have to worry about all the hot pads moving around with the pots.
I found some left-over 12 inch tile that was left over from our bathroom floors when we built. I didn’t have any felt, but I had some fleece material (left over from Halloween, obviously!)
I hot glued the fleece to the back of each tile, trimmed it up, and lined it up! Looks kind of cool! I might try to cover that end up somehow, either put some trim on it or something. I think I will find some of those chair fleece circle pads. I believe that would be a better option. First, it would get the tile OFF the table so it would not transfer heat to the table, and second, it would make that edge look a WHOLE LOTTA better. It is really bugging me that I am seeing those fleece parts under the tile. However, it might be a while until I can go and get some of those and until that time, this will work for now! I can easily take these tiles off when I don’t need them, while keeping my table top in tack!
Well, we’ll play around with this one a little bit more and update the pictures when I get it all figured out. I guess I am doing this blogging thing backwards! Oh well! I think it would look cool if you had different sizes, shapes and colors of tiles. If you end up trying it, send me a picture my way!
