I gather my glass pieces that I have broke with a hammer and some that I have cut. Here I loaded down my wagon ready to get started.

I cut out the middle of the vintage plates and then used the outside rim. Piece by piece I attach the pieces with E6000. After 48 hours its ready to be grouted and painted.

I used a white sanded grout and found some black enamel paint that I had left over from another project. The black made the pattern pop out I think.
