An old junk coffee table was transformed with discarded plates and tiles into a country cottage treasure


Old plates, thrift store tiles, a $1.00 coffee table and a little spare time transformed this ugly brown table into a swan.

I especially like how you did the center part with adding the white square tiles in the corners. That was a surprise element. Posted: 11:11 pm on September 19th
