Joint Effort

Last year TB found the legs of a sturdy cafe table tossed out behind a restaurant in Woden. When I bought my box of hand-painted Mexican tiles at Tiny’s Green Shed a few weeks ago we did a rough calculation and discovered that there were enough to make a table top that fitted those old legs with no need to make any cuts to the tiles.

After a quick clean down and paint TB added some wooden slats and a piece of left over wet-area fibroboard from our bathroom rennovation to make the top.

Then it was my turn to do the tiling and grouting. We are both pleased with the result.

The table is now in the garden and we’ve already put it to good use, relaxing with a cup of tea and a good book.
