Sometimes it's hard to feel relaxed in NYC and as you probably know, we have no outdoor space!

So we decided to take a little time for ourselves and create a mini oasis with a table top fountain.

To make the actual fountain we used a mini water pump, brass pipes, hexagon marble tiles, river rocks and a plant.

If you want to use a living plant stick it in a little container of it's own water before adding it in the fountain, it will not survive in the same water with the brass pipes.

To create the geode effect on the tiles we used an alcohol dying technique. If you haven't tried this, do it! The process is as relaxing as the fountain and we're obsessed! 

Check out the alcohol ink process here.
