I've been working on some redos around the house and have an excess of extra tiles. So, what's a girl to do? Well, I have some ideas!

First off, make sure that you keep some tiles in case one of your tiles gets chipped or cracked then you have a tile from the same lot to make your repair.

Add some silicone buffers to the bottoms of several smaller tiles to make a set of custom coasters.

Adding the same feet to a bigger tile makes a great hot plate for protecting counters and tabletops.

Place some tiles in a heavy paper bag and use a hammer to break them up. Then use the pieces to create a fun mosaic piece.

For specifics on mosaics - check out my website.

Those broken pieces could also be used in the bottom of a pot as a drainage layer.

If you have a salvaged table or dresser that needs some TLC tile the top of it for a great new look.

If you're into crafting, an old tile is the perfect spot to rest your hot glue gun. I'm Mrs. Fixit and it's just that simple!
