A DIY Table Tale

Once upon a time there was this little table in the master bathroom.  It was cute, and oh so useful, catching my jammies on the way into the shower, but needed a little something.

Along came some inspiration (from BHG)! I am currently in love with turquoise, and loved this combination with white and browns.
Turquoise Inspiration
This is the same color Megan used to repaint her desk, so I didn't even have to buy paint. Step 1 was to add some molding strips to form a frame. We found these in the garage and hand cut them with a miter box. Then I primed and painted. Cost so far...$0.
Next I added leftover glass tiles from the remodel of the floor. Still no cost! Photobucket
Grout (also leftover from the floor) and replace!  And the boring little table is now a mosaic color punch in the room!  Total cost - $0, total time, about a week, since I had to wait for primer and paint to dry in between steps.

I am pleased with the project and anxious to add more turquoise elements to the room!
