From Coffee Table To Cafe Ole Table!

Whew! I have finally completed a project I have been working on a little bit each night.

We were in need of a coffee table in our living space -- and I really like to rummage around finding something unique. Nothing I saw appealed to me -- and then I got my mind set on having a tile table to bring color to our Spanish Eclectic decor. Of course I was not willing to part with the dinero a tile table would set me back!

Sooooo...I decided to make Faux Mexican Tiles...uh... out of paper! Yes. Each of these tiles are painted on watercolor paper :) There are 45 of 'em! And of course it is varnished..so go ahead, set down that glass of Sangria..er...cup of coffee...and enjoy!

    Wow NICE... I love it.
    How many different designs did you use?

    I love that the corner "tiles" are the same but different.

    This is a table that would leave me crying when I walked out of the store without it because I couldn't afford to take it home with me!

    BrotherGene!: Thanks! I really don't know how many different designs I have - that would require NUMBERS running through my head...argh...I am an artist, numbers don't work with me :-) I just put a flamenco CD on and let the muse take me away and created!

    Elena: Which by the way will be my new forever name for you...Gracias, Gracias, MUCHO Gracias!
