My friend, Edy decided to rearrange her dining space converting her former dining table to an outdoor patio table. You may remember Edy, from her art card series or maybe you have seen her paintings in person.
Earlier this summer, we came up with the idea to tile and grout it’s surface to make it more resilient to entertaining and also hide some signs of wear and tear.
We decided to tackle one last creative project before the summer was over. Here is a peak at how the table looked before grouting.
While we had some tiles of our own, the best part was hunting for new pieces at Venice Discount Tile Center…rummaging through a plethora of cracked tiles and motley shaped tiles.
We had a colorful collection to work with rooted in sea-greens and bright pops of yellows and orange, when we began the project.
After arranging the tiles, we began to glue them down with ceramic adhesive.
Some might say it looked like a colorful board game once the tiles we arranged.
After letting the glue set-up for an hour or so…we began the grouting process. Mixing the grout we went for a smooth consistency that could be poured around and between the tiles. As the mixture dried out…we used wet sponges to sculpt the surface.
You can see a final picture of this table poolside with it’s painted legs on Edy’s Flickr site.
All the amazing photos taken by Edy and Danny Levin.
That’s all for the tile table adventure:) I hope you all have a great weekend!
