Summer is rapidly approaching and I'm eager to get my patio set up and functioning. All I brought with me in the move was a green chair that I redid last summer and it was pretty sad sitting out on the patio all by itself this spring.
Tile can transform the most mundane tabletop into an eye-catching centerpiece. After all, who wants to invite guests to a home and place evening drinks on an old, rusty, nasty looking table? Applying tiles to a wooden tabletop makes it waterproof allowing you the option of enjoying your new tabletop outdoors, which is an added bonus, incase a drink accidentally spills! Placing a decorated tabletop on your front porch, deck or landscaping will excite your senses. Applying tiles to a tabletop is a project that most do-it-yourselfers can accomplish in an afternoon, thus preventing you from having to allow yourself an entire weekend to create a beautiful tabletop. If it takes you longer than an afternoon, don’t worry, it’s ok. If you are tiling an outdoor tabletop and want an umbrella, drill a hole through the center of the tabletop and carefully cut your tiles around the opening, as this will prevent you from having to drill into the tiles. I have tried to drill on tiles, it did not work out to well for me.
Literally one of the easiest remakes you can do is spray paint. You can spray paint just about any hard piece of wood, plastic, glass, even some metals. And brightening up your patio is as easy as putting a fresh coat of paint on something, and hey if you don't like you can always paint it back. This took all of two coats and about 5 hours to dry.
