Mosaic Planter Bed Top September 2, 2008

Our neighborhood elementary school built this raised concrete brick planter bed in their small garden near the street. The bricks are cemented in place and the top layer is decorated with mosaic tiles, no doubt by the kids. I thought it was a nice way to jazz up the otherwise kind of dull gray bricks.

    Those mosaic cement bricks are quite pretty. It really gives the edge of that raised bed a nice kick! πŸ™‚

    I love mosaics. I have been wanting to make one, but I needed the tile. Just like that my neighbor and my mother out of the blue asked if I wanted a old box of leftover tile from their remodel. How about that! Now I have no excuse!
    Best,
    Philip

    PGL –

    Yes, it does make the plain concrete so much more cheerful and lively.

    I’m sure you will create something lovely. I have some salvaged tiles sitting in a tub in my garage, waiting for me to become a more creative person. πŸ™‚
