One of the great things about mosaics is that you can turn old things into pieces of art. This old chair was ready for the tip but with a bit of creativity & effort its become a beautiful piece of furniture which can take pride of place in someone's home. How about making one of your own next weekend? Here are the instructions to help you.
- Old wooden chair
- White paint
- A selection of mosaic tiles
- Cement based adhesive
- White grout + additive
- Grout sealer
- Glass tile cutters
Directions1. Prepare the chair
As the chair is wooden it will require sealing to protect it from water damage. I have also painted the chair white because of the design.
2. Cut your tiles
3. Laying the tiles
I've used a white grout with an additive. Once cured the grout was sealed to assist with protecting it against stains.
