Maybe you, like many homeowners who have done remodeling in the past, have leftover pieces of material littering your garage or workshop. Okay, maybe you're a neatnik and your materials are all stacked or otherwise stored.


Ever think about cutting them in shapes that fit together to make a floor for, say, a small guest bathroom? It's easy enough to do provided you have a tile cutting saw and a pattern of the design you want to create on the floor. You can even lay down a border, like a picture frame to give a dramatic finished look to the floor, like the work of art it is. Don't have quite enough pieces for a whole floor?


Hide pieces that fit but don't match beneath a vanity or under the toilet. But don't waste or throw out good materials, even if you only have a few pieces. You never know what you might be able to create with a little time on your hands in the garage, a tile saw, and some marble floor tiles in different colors.


Cut the pieces in a flower pattern, glue it together, and make a kitchen trivet for hot dishes. Or, craft a large circle or oval pattern in the shape of a star or sun for your garden. There are myriad things you can do with leftover marble.


So head for the garage, look around to see what you have on hand, and let those creative juices flow. If your design or project doesn't work out, then you can think about recycling your cast-offs. But not before.
