Fundraiser Bench

This bench is a winner.... not only for the recipient,
but for our school as well!

Our school holds a Spring Fair every year.
Each class is encouraged to make a project to donate to the cause.

This year our Brownie Troop created a
bench that was so awesome I just had to share it. 
I wish I could say this was my idea... but it wasn't.

Each of the girls created a beautifully painted clay tile that was glazed and fired at a local art/clay shop. 

Similar tiles could be made by using acrylic paints on a tile and coating the tiles with a poly coat.

The tiles were attached to a board that was attached to the back of the bench and trimmed with decorative wood.

The bench was a hit! It raised a ton of money for the school and
is going to look awesome in one lucky family's home.

A beautiful project and excellent fundraiser!
Great job Brownies!
Very Creative!

  6. Love love love this idea! How did you glue the tiles on the board? Did you grout in between them as well? Thank you!! Great job Brownies!!!

    1. Lorena I did not make this bench but I believe they made a board to fit the bench back. They then attached the tiles and grouted. They then used trim molding to trim the edges. Beautiful right??
