I used antique plates, broken pottery, figurines, candle holders and flowers to fill in the top.
I rescued a beat up old coffee table from a flea market. It used to have a glass top. The frame was not attached. It is solid and has great lines. Perfect for tiling.
Looks much better after a coat of paint.
The paint is slightly distressed.
The grout is sealed and the sharp edged smoothed off. Finished!
