Vintage tiles in our new bathroom

I like how they fill the gap between the mirror and the sink. 
They are also practical, and were free. Brings back a "vintage" look without feeling old and outdated!
I attached the wood part to the wall with 4 long nails.
 Making sure the wood was leveled!
 I used liquid nails to attach the tiles to the wood...liquid nails is THE best!
And here a final look of how they fit in the space!

How I made this for .50 cents

Too bad that builders don't provide those in bathrooms anymore. You've added something very necessary and attractive to your bathroom! I'm sure you will get alot of use out of those.

Perfection!! They go so well with all the elements in the bathroom, especially that bead board wall!

We have those too but I can't get any toothbrushes to fit down those holes! Love how you got them back up!

I agree with Kelly; those are the necessary elements that a bathroom needs. And since liquids nails have a thick consistency and can be used as a heavy-duty construction adhesive, you can be sure that these will stick for a long time. Cheers to the vintage tiles! :)

I love the fact that you didn’t spend anything on this by salvaging your old tiles. It really is rewarding to see a recycled object still looking great on a totally new project. This is how vintage is achieved!
