How to Make Your Own Tile Table

Furniture is not very cheap and you can’t always afford how to buy what you need, especially if you would like some special furniture for your garden, for the patio or for any outdoor location. But sometimes you might want to do things yourself and you can do that by using bits of other materials, so in the end you will have a very nice table that is hand made and the result of your work. A very good idea is to make your own tile table. When making it you can use either fragments of broken tiles that you can arrange in a puzzle together with pieces of colored glass or even whole tiles that you have left after you had your kitchen floor all tiled.

The first thing to do is choose the support for such a table. That means that you must look either for an old wooden table that you can cover after that with tile or for some old metallic one that would be perfect for your puzzle tile table.

Then you should arrange the available pieces according to color and shape and decide on the design, I mean the pattern according to which the pieces will be arranged. Just place the pieces like in a puzzle after you have covered the support table with some kind of adhesive that is recommended for tiles.

Then wait for everything to be dried and glued together and polish it for a better look. If you do not have old tables to use, just use some plywood for the base. This can be an amazing idea, because this way you can cut the plywood to your own desire and you can make a tile table shaped like a flower or a star or whatever you might imagine.

Another interesting idea might be to use whole tiles that you will place on the wooden frame. Just make sure you carve a small ditch that will be perfect for fixing the tiles. Any way, no matter what you choose from these ideas, the result can be amazing if only you have some eye for design and are willing to try. Good luck!
