Just a little neat idea that actually worked, involving roped wood trim.
When you need an edge to a tiled counter top and you are on a budget,
this works! I took wooden rope trim that you can buy at the hardware
store and painted it to match the tile color in the kitchen. I attached
it to the counter with liquid nails, then I grouted it when I grouted
the rest of the counter top. Unlike regular tile pieces that has
sections about 12 inches apart or less, this has a continuous flow. I
LOVE IT! It looks just like tile. It is much more affordable as well.
Pretty with the sink and faucet!
Kitty says it is Puuuuuurfect!
Oh, I has some left over, so I added it to one of my fireplace mantels. I also added these sweet little birds that are old home interior, they were brown and plastic, but now they have been re-purposed into carved wooden birds. Maybe I am an Illusionist, I make wood look like tile and plastic look like wood!
