Picture TileWhat a great way to display a picture, tre chic! If you’re bored with picture frames, and want an elegant,yet rustic look that’s very fresh, try this idea! I love the idea of transferring pictures onto tile, because no matter the image, ( painting or photo ) it will transfer to tile, and the final effect is different depending on the kind of tile you use. You can go with a smooth tile, or a porous tile, as in the photo. It just depends on the look your going for! You can give it a matte finish, or a super high gloss finish. And the process is really fun and easy!
