Message Board and Trivet.
After doing some kitchen remodeling I had some left over tile from the backsplash. My wife has a “chicken” theme going on in the kitchen so I ordered some custom hand made tiles from here. I have done a few picture frames but no experience with tile and grout. I decided to go for it. I put a writeable white board with epoxied metal sheets and glued on magnets on the backs of the note pads. The frames are oak finished with shellac. The tile and grout work was easier than I thought. I may have worked up the courage to do a table for outside next spring.

What a great way to use up some of the leftovers to make a new project and tie it in with the d├ęcor of the room. Nice work, it turned out great and I like the “special” tiles. Thanks for the link.
