Let's Dish Some More

I'm sure there are a thousand broken dish mosaic projects on this site, but I just couldn't resist adding one more.  This chest was given to me by an obliging curb, and it cried out to be covered in dishes. And I had just coincidentally knocked over a pile of plates at my shop. Happy happy joy joy!  This was my first attempt...and was it a labor of love. But the results were worth it.
