    How to Make a Mosaic Table

    Last year I broke a glass topped table and I upcycled it using decoupage. You can see that project here. That worked really well so this year I thought I would try upcycling the same table again using mosaic tiles. It worked really well and looks really professional as you can see here. So, read on, be inspired and have a go yourself. It is great for that cup of tea (or something stronger) in the garden.
