Hello and happy summer pretty handy readers. It’s Jessica from Decor Adventures. With the weather getting warmer, I’m completing lots of outdoor projects these days. One DIY adventure I’ve never actually tackled is tiling, but I’ve always wanted to. Today I’m going to show you how to tile a small table top. It’s easier than you think and is perfect for the outdoors too.
- Small table
- Tile adhesive (also called mortar or thinset)
- Tile (enough to cover the top of the table)
- Notched trowel
- Rubber float
- Grout sponge
- Tile cutters
- A bucket
- Paint for the table (optional)
- Plastic gloves
- Eye protection
First, prepare your table. The small table I’m using was the one we used for my pet parrot when I was little! His name was Woodstock, and no he didn’t talk. I guess my mom taught me and my sister to talk instead :-). The table had sentimental value, so I knew I wanted to create something special with it.
