The Potter's Shed

Monday, June 27, 2011

Thanks again for all your help and suggestions! I decided against the grout. I did a grouted sample with leftover tiles and wasn't happy with the look. It seemed to "flatten" it, when one of my favorite aspects is the different tile heights. Plus I love the old wood peeking through.

I'm calling it The Potting Shed. I included some pics of my inspiration! Not sure what I'm doing with it yet..I might muster up the courage to enter it in our local museum's member show :) Or I'll keep it!

  5. I'm so glad that you decided not to grout it.
    It's beautiful.
    Thanks for sharing your inspiration, you really did evoke that same feeling.

  9. Your piece the "Potters Shed" is just amazing! I have never seen anything like that. The colors and different textures are perfect and creating the piece in the old drawer is ingenious!!
