Tip Shop Acacia Ridge - Brisbane City Council/Endeavour - OzMosaics

mosaic chair ozmosaics black white tile gridThis is a wooden chair I purchased from the Acacia Ridge Tip shop ($5.00).
Using a mosaic grid and some special techniques I have developed over the mosaic years, the wooden chair was transformed by modern mosaic design.
The back of the chair has the word BRIDE in golden mosaic glitter tiles!

There is often a good range of old wooden chairs, bar stools etc for purchased.
Pot luck when you visit!

These pots are perfect for mosaics!

When we visited the Acacia Ridge Tip Shop we were excited to see so many pots just waiting for mosaic decoration!
If you love mosaics, visit the Brisbane City Council / Endeavour Foundation - Acacia Ridge Tip Shop and buy up big!

First in best dressed as usual....... you never know what you will find when you visit!

Furniture, kid's toys, odds and ends, china, picture frames, clothes, handbags.... rummage through and turn second hand materials into great mosaic tesserae or substrates!
