What to do with left over porcelain wood tile?

+18
Answered
I'm looking for ideas to use up the broken and cut pieces that are left over.
They are porcelain that look like wood with an actual grain in the tile.
Mosaics is one idea I already had, but was hoping to find some other ideas.
Looking for something that might have a rustic appeal.
TIA,
Valerie

    You could use it as a backsplash, or as a border around a large mirror. It's beautiful tile!

    I am not creative, so I have no answer for you, but I am about to use wood tile for my den. That is beautiful tile, what is it/where did it come from?

    Make sure you keep a few good pieces in case you need to replace any that get broken. I always purchase 10% more of any product in case of damage in the future. Tile, roofing, wallpaper, etc.

    I was going to mention flower vases or planter boxes, but that's covered in the link Janet gave. Lots of great ideas there.

    Find a large mirror either at a garage sale or craigslist and use the pieces of tile around the mirror for a modern design....or update some cheap or old lamps .....last of all...create a contemporary piece of art....so many things you can do with tile

    I used one for different pictures and made a collage. It turned out really good.

    I have a bunch of slate tile pieces that I was going to use to make a counter top in our laundry room for folding clothes, etc. Maybe you could do something like that with your tile. If you don't have enough for a whole project you could always mix it with another complimentary or contrasting material.

    Glue them to plywood shapes that you like, trim the edges and use as hot plates/trivets....or make feeding stations for pets food and water dishes? Could also use them to the window sills for a more waterproof place for plants.

    Could use it to dress up old dresser tops or old wooden shelves maybe.

    Might break in smaller pieces and put into a form and make stepping stones.
