I decided that my blue mermaid needed to sit up on something. So I took a wooden box that had broken hinges and glue the top shut.
I used the same mosaic tiles on the top that are also on our sink backsplash.
On the edge are some of the pencil tiles from the sink backsplash
the sides have some left over glass tiles that were used in the kitchen
before the box
