Mosaic Project

My childhood collection of miniature tea sets had been collecting dust in my parent's attic for years. When my parents moved about a year ago I had to figure out something to do with my collection or else it was going on the trash.

Voila- a mirror for the entry!

Framed mirror from thrift shop $15
Grout $10
Glue $6

Project Total $31 (excluding my priceless collection of course!)
