DIY: Trivets (What? Hint: You Want One)

It has been an incredibly busy summer but as fall begins, I have promised myself I will at least make time for ONE little DIY project that has been on my list for a while.

I have some beautiful old kitchen tiles from our summer home in Cesme which we replaced a few years ago during a renovation. I have been saving a few to make trivets so that I can continue using them in my own kitchen. Although I'm planning to make my trivets with "used" tiles, you can also use store bought/new tile or really anything similar.

My kitchen tiles in their original glory!

The main challenge I face is the caked on mortar on the backside. After some googling, I found these instructions on how to apply muriatic acid for a project like this. After that, I intend to apply self-adhesive thin cork sheet (or rubber cement regular cork sheet), and voila! A way I can continue to use my beloved tiles!
