Craftroom Table/Door

Hubby & I have been tiling the insets of a $5 olden wooden door I found junking.  It's future is to be my craftroom work table\desk.  I have quite the collection of broken up dishes/plates here to pull from!   We used 1/2 or 3/4 inch plywood under the door for better stability and support and will top it with a pc of glass I just ordered today.  The piece will rest on 2 open stock cabinets with 4 drawers each we got at  Home Depot during their 25% off sale.   
 There are 2 large and 2 small inset panels on my door/craft table.   We used up our treasures pretty well.  That metalic tile is from the tile backsplash in our home we sold 2 yrs ago.  The pear plate was in a set of 8 Blue Ridge fruit plates my G'ma gave me.  I have the other 7 hanging in my kitchen.   
I have accidentally broken some favorites thru the years.  I love china, porcelain and ceramics.  The Blue Danabe onion plate was in a trio above my kitchen door for years.  The green ribbed Starbucks mug was given to me by my youngest son several yrs ago.  His lil heart broke when he saw it got broken.
We still have to grout the whole piece.   Won't it be fun to look down and see some memories.
I own a set of snowman dishes and my son has broken some bowls while on dish duty. So...I have some to show ya with this project.
Also, our neighbors gave youngest the penguin mug and it got a chip where your mouth is suppose to experience hot cocoa.  Isn't he cute playing along with the snowmen.
I look forward to showing you my dream craft space as it comes together!!
I stepped out in some favorite pink this week to drop off and pick up oldest son from baseball open field practice.  No one saw me and if they had I would have smiled and waved.  My hot pink robe and leopard slippers with pink poof on them.

Not only can U feed your pink craze but apparently your snowman fix too this week.

Ya'll gotta forgive me!!  I can't decide what to do about my Blog Header or name!! is still just me...


  1. Great idea and you are doing a super job. Would never have thought of it.

  2. Oh how you'll enjoy this piece.... We had an earthquake a number of years ago and I "tiled" my bathroom counter, in our old house, with some of my very favorite vintage china... I loved it and I didn't feel like all those beautiful pieces had gone to waste. It's actually what sold our old house. :-) I'll look forward to seeing the new piece in it's new home.



  3. Hi Denise Marie,

    Thanks for being so faithful to Blue Monday, and for sharing your blues. I love the way you take an unhappy moment (breaking a special item) and turn it into a treasure to cherish.

    Happy New Year and Happy Blue Monday!

  5. Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy! I love what you've done with your door! I love the memories too. I made a mosaic stump table out of broken dishes and I remember thinking about what this piece was from and then another piece and so on and so on. You've put the together wonderfully! I can't wait to see what else you do with this soon to be fabulous space. Happy Happy New Year!

  6. And by you've put the together I really meant you've put the table top together wonderfully!
