mosaics 12.19.13

I have been creating mosaics on and off for a few years.

I recently relocated to Houston and left a lot of furniture behind so I needed to supplement on a budget. I visited my local thrift shop looking for a side table for my living room which has a dark teal as an accent color, drapes, pillows, accessories. I love geometric designs and came up with this design to match the decor. I paid $4.95 for the cute oak table. I hope you like it

    How do you cut the materials? Do you need special tools? We have screwdrivers, a hammer and a wrench that came with our bed frame lol! Other than that, we a tool free (except my hubby at times lol!) house :( I DO however have a hot glue gun and use that
