A couple of years ago I rescued a small, solid white plastic table from our local rubbish bins. I will qualify this by saying people do leave good stuff near the bins in the hope it is rehomed. What a great way to recycle!
The only promble – the plastic had deteriorated and lost its shine.
I thoroughly cleaned the table and stored it in our garage with the idea I would collect discarded swimming pool tiles and tile samples to mosaic the top.
Two years later with a good supply of swimming pool tiles collected from the local bins, I started the project.
1. Mark out the design.
2. Cut and stick the tiles. I used the T Rex Cristal glue which is 100% invisible, strong and water resistant. And mosaic nippers to cut the tiles.
Once all the tiles were in place …
3. I grouted with water resistant grout.
and sprayed the base with white PVC paint.
Who says you can’t make a silk purse from a sow’s ear? Now I just need to buy some water resistant product to protect the grout for stains, such as red wine, tea an coffee.
I have hundreds of tiles left … myabe my next project will be a full size table!
