Creative Saltillo Tile Mosaics

April 3rd, 2014 · 3 Comments

You can buy linoleum flooring that has a cobblestone pattern.  This floor doesn’t seem to have a repeating pattern.  I think it might be pieces of saltillo clay tile that were painstakingly placed there.  That’s a lot of time & energy and grout.

The house has saltillo tile throughout.  Along with a few friends.  Here’s Mr. Turtle.

This appears to be a woman with very tiny hands.  Perhaps it was inspired by Kristen Wiig’s character named Dooneese on Saturday Night Live?

This home has a lot of minor fixes.  Easy stuff, right?

Just needs new peel-n-stick flooring.

A little Comet will clean that sink up quick.
