In My Spare Time

cat mosaic coffee table
When I'm not working with fabric, fibers, and such, I have a few other things I like to dabble in. One of them being mosaics. The above coffee table was a rummage sale find about two years ago, I paid $2.00 for it. The top of the table was a little rough looking but for what I had in store for it that was okay.

Did you notice the part where I said I bought it two years ago? Well yes, that's about how long I've been working on this project. Yesterday I finally got far enough along with it to put the grout on. That was fun, like playing in the mud. I'm going to let the grout set really well over the next few days and then the next step is to turn it upside down and sand and prime the legs and underneath areas. I will then paint some designs in coordinating colors. Hmmm, I wonder if it will take me another year to get that part done.
