I decided to go with this rectangular base since I am going to add mosaic tiles to make it look like a bathroom floor (I liked the round base better, but it would be impossible to round up the tiles :D)
Some of the mosaic tiles I had on hand (I used the blue stones for my Takeo girl project)
Just a small test.
First I painted the base glossy black. After that I used Mosaic Tile adhesive I picked at the Michaels store. Apparently it dries clear :D This is the first time I am using this, so I wasn't sure about the final result.
This is after the adhesive was applied, but before it dried out. I left it to cure overnight.
I applied the Tub Seal that most people use in their REAL bathrooms :D I did used this stuff before for Takeo girls, so I actually knew what to expect.
