Fun Projects With Tiles

Posted by

I am always looking for new and creative ways to use tiles.  I found some fun ideas and thought I'd share them with you.  

This one I found on a website for $275.00!  I think it could be made fairly easily with a shadow box frame, and if you love the beauty of a tile, this is a way to enjoy it without putting it in a back splash.

I like this one because I've always wanted to tile an old table, but the size didn't exactly work.  Here they added a trim piece around the tiles, so it works with any size.

This is a good ideas for my mother, who has played the piano her whole life, but it could be adapted for any type of work or hobby.  Customize your own coasters for a great Christmas gift.

This is another great Christmas gift idea.  You could make these yourself, or I can make them for you with your photos.

     ( I love photos on tile!)

This is just a few ideas and I'll keep looking for more I'm sure.  Let me know if you have any fun tile projects to share!
