My white board message center is done.
I had to buy more of the tiny iridescent tiles because I had miscalculated the amount I would need to finish the border. The pleasant news about that was I actually got a small refund on that order because it didn't cost as much to ship as they had originally charged me. Hooray for mosaicartsupply.com!
Here is my board hanging on the wall where I wanted it, but its not quite done yet.
Now I have finished the tiles, grouted, and added a section of cork to pin whatever up.
I really like how the tiles almost glow with the iridescence. Unfortunately it doesn't really show up too well in these photos.
And finally a close up of the side tiles I used.
In the end I may have spent more than I would have if I had bought a ready made board but my home made message center is prettier and definitely more satisfying!
