Pam’s story on crazy, sexy, NOS vintage mosaic tile on Ebay inspired a lot of people to fancy up their bathroom floors and kitchen backsplashes. After our last story aired, two more readers showed us what they did with their share of this awesome vintage tile motherlode.
Reader Diane used some of the NOS vintage tile in her powder room renovation. She writes:
Well here in my ongoing powder room renovation, It started with the original owners being told to update the powder room by their realtor only to have us return it to the original style for the house, an mcm flat roof.
The tiles are from Mark, which were featured on the carousel, and I chose a pewter grout. The sconces are also from the carousel. The mirror was a $5 church sale find. We removed the frame because it was too small for the space and rebuilt it using oak flooring left over from another project. We then glued bamboo plant stakes in a random fashion and coated it with gold sparkle spray paint. The hand towel under the light switch is a metal bracket from a sink inset with glass door knobs to hold the towels.
We still need to replace the light switches and also the sink when the money tree starts growing again — but we’re on our way!
Looks great Diane — and how fun that you also found your wall sconces on one of Pam’s Ebay carousels.
The kitchen backsplash is just what I wanted. Seller was wonderful to work with too, and cut me a break because I bought twelve panels. They think of this as mosaic project material.
I got the tile mural on eBay from artontile, and I have since changed out the switch plates for ceramic shell and water bird design ones.
Wow — looks great Elaine. Your bowtie kitchen cabinet pulls are retro-tastic as well.
We’re just delighted to see all the projects you’ve completed with the NOS Ebay tiles — special thanks to Diane and Elaine for sharing their mosaic tile stories.
