Small table top grouted

concretenprimrosesApril 14, 2011

Well I did it. After trying grey grout dry in the openings and I just didn't like it, so I went with a sand color (bird was already done in charcoal)

I'm pleased that the butterfly and the bug, which I made decal style in the oven, made it through the grouting process. Even though I put painters tape over I was a little bit worried.

I think I'll take a break from the table and mosaic a wooden bowl next. I am considering doing part of the sides of the table, but I have been looking at it for too long and lost my perspective.

thanks for looking.

So cool! Quite unexpected, that bird swooping down like that. I like it. I like the sand-colored grout too. I find myself using it more often than any other, with charcoal coming in as my next favorite.

thank you. I decided that I am going to take a stained glass class so I can learn to cut glass better. I had a very hard time with my bird. Although I prefer plates, it was fun to mix some glass in.

I forgot to say its supposed to go next to the bed in the gurest room. It has a slanted book shelf on the botton. I'm going to double check for sharp edges and dremel them if I find any.

See - you knew what to do and you DID it. The bird is the point of interest, and your grout is PERFECT - shows up ever detail just right. Congratulations.
