– Old table – Tile – Tile glue – Grout


– Level or ruler – Sandpaper

Step 1: Prep your side table

The first thing you’ll want to do is clean your entire table, especially the table top. Give everything a good wipe with soapy water and let it dry.

Step 2: Prepare tile glue

Mix your tile glue per the directions on the bag. There is also pre-mixed tile adhesive you can buy in gallon tubs or in handheld tubes.

Step 3: Apply tile glue

Next, you’ll want to apply your tile glue and spread it evenly on the surface of your table using a spreader.

Step 4: Apply tile

Taking your time, apply your pieces of tile. Use your level or ruler to make sure they are straight.

Step 5: Allow glue to dry

Following the instructions on your glue of choice, allow it to dry. This is usually around 4-6 hours.

Step 6: Sand the corners

Using a strong grade sandpaper, round the corners of the tile to avoid any dangerous pointy corners.
