"Penny Lane Projects" (before & after)

I thought I'd start a segment on the projects I do in our new home (since there are so many I have planned). These are before and after photos of our kitchen sink. I would love to replace the sink all together and put in a deep farm sink but in the mean time this is what I did. I took 6 different patterns of scrapbook paper and cut them up into little squares. Then I placed them directly on the existing tile that surrounded the sink in a mosaic pattern using elmers glue. Once they were placed and the glue had dried I poured on my favorite 2 part resin (equal to 50 coats of varnish) and let it dry for 72 hours. Now this work space around the sink has a little more character and feels more like me.

I still want to change out the faucet fixture but this was the first step.


  1. Clever...Now whats that brand of resin you use?

  2. OOOHHHH yes...that is when a house becomes a home...when you infuse it with your own personal and creative visions...when you imbue it with all of your artistic flair!

    this is so creative...I have never used resin...but you are making it feel like it is an approachable form of art for me.....thanks for that.....if I ever need any resin advice, I trust you to be the source of that information! lol

    hope you are settling in to your new abode!
    one day at a time, right!
