I have an outdoor table where the table top was damaged by hail. I could not afford to replace the table so my dad made a frame for it to sit on top of the table top with rock board so I could tile it.
You can see I painted the trim with deck stain to protect the wood. Also, I dry laid out the tiles – that’s the outlined shapes you see on the rock board. It sat like that when it rained a couple of times, and nature did the outline for me!
I used a pre-mixed ceramic tile adhesive to attach the tiles.
As you can see I used tiles, tile pieces, and decorative rocks to fill in between the larger pieces of tiles. At this point in the project, I hope that the grout will ‘finish’ the table. I am a little nervous for how this will turn out.
After grouting, I did seal the grout to withstand rain. We will see how the weather elements affect the table.
Below are pictures of the finished product!
I think the table came out pretty well, and I have gotten a number of compliments on it!
What do you think? I would love to hear from you!
