So what do you do with .............

 

So what do you do with all the bits and pieces of tiles that you have left over from tiling?

We have a crate full and two buckets. You can't just throw them away can you?

Well I was not about to do that so......................

I thought up a cunning plan.

This is my outside sink. I have started to put these tile off-cuts to use. I've added a few sun glass nuggets and HEY PRESTO - modern art tiling at its best (free). The dark tiles cost 25 euro a square meter, can't throw them away.

Now that I can see what it is going to be like I will carry on and end up with something unique.

before I even read your words when I saw those tiles I thought don't toss them, its art waiting to happen, can't wait to see it finished. Awesome.

Thanks Jenny and Lynn, How could I throw them away. I have purposely saved them to do something with and a splashback seemed the thing to do.
