The first mosaic I ever made was a green lizard on a blue background (made from left-over kitchen and bathroom tiles). I’d found a wrought iron half-circle table by the roadside and dragged it home for upcycling. Next I progressed to smashing tiles and covering an Ikea-bought table with flowers.
I really liked the abstract flowers but was never happy with the grout colour I mixed up. It’s always bugged me. I attempted to remove the grout a couple of years ago but found it was too noisy, too hard and gave up. I’ve contemplated taking the table to the refuse centre several times but each time something has stopped me. I’m so glad it did.
As our new neighbours are having extensive building works done I haven’t felt so guilty creating a racket in my workshop, so while they’ve been drilling, so have I !!
I don’t know how many hours or Dremel bits it’s taken, but I dug out as much grout as I could and re-grouted in black. And I love it
