She writes, "We had a tile table that was made with really good, solid wood...but I hated the way it looked (hello, 1996). I really love Fiestaware so I decided to rip the tile out and make a mosaic out of Fiestaware. My husband took the day off of work and went down to the infamous Fiestaware tent sale (all of the seconds are 1/2 off). He stood in line with about 600 other people just to get me the plates that I needed (I know, he's a great guy!)."
To see the fab results,
Princessnance and her mom took nearly all day tearing the original tile off of the table. Then, after her awesome hubby returned with the plates, they broke them into pieces, and laid them in the tile adhesive, making sure that there were no pieces that were the same color beside each other.
I love the finished result. As a fan of mosaics in general and Fiestaware in particular, this is such a cheery update to Princessnance's kitchen. And, to make things that much more festive, Princessnance reports, "I painted the dark dining room Fiesta Orange and sewed up curtains to match." Check out the gallery for a glimpse of the new kitchen color and curtains.
