Utilize tile samples / タイルのサンプルを有効活用


Finished product
I had a brown timber shoe rack at home. It is quite old and not so attractive, but it was still usable. I didn’t wanna throw away, but wanted to re-fresh the look. As I was studying Interior Design last year, I had various sample tiles that I received from interior design exhibitions.  So, I decided to put those colourful tiles onto the shoe rack. First, I separated each tile from the sample book. 
Using a glue gun, I glued the various sample chips (they are normally used on kitchen bench top) onto the shoe rack, and made a flat surface to place tiles. 
This is how it looks from above. I started to place some tiles. Considering the colour balance, just place the tiles temporarily. No glue at this point yet. 
I decided the tile layout.  I lifted tiles and placed white clay underneath. I bought this clay at a DAISO store (DAISO is a Japanese store. I bought very light-weighted clay, which would get hard once it gets dry. Everything in DAISO is $2.80 in Sydney).
Push the tiles into the clay. I used glue gun behind each tile to make sure the tiles stay on the base.  The top photo shows the finished product! Very charming and I love it.
