A puzzle you make as you go along. And who doesn’t want to hit tiles with a hammer?
The island originally had wood laminate with sheets of glass tiles epoxied on, no grout, painted over with the wall colour (twice). I picked up these tiles pre-lockdown at the Re-Store, perfect for smashing.
I didn’t like grouting as much (Alex helped). the mosaic is glossy and reflective, and the south window lights it up in the morning while you have a coffee.
