Instructions for a mosaic garden table
➤ Step 1:
First of all, you should mask the frame of the table with masking tape to protect it from dirt.
➤ Step 2:
Prepare the tile adhesive and then apply it to the table top with a smoothing trowel. Then comb the mass with a notched trowel.
➤ Step 3:
If you want to have a special pattern, you should draw this on the table. Simply scratch into the tile adhesive with a pointed object. Of course, you can also lay the mosaic tiles as you wish.
➤ Step 4:
Now place the mosaic tiles on the table top from the outside in. You have to decide how big the distance between the tiles should be. However, it should not be less than two millimeters.
After laying the tiles, let everything dry well for about 5 hours.
➤ Step 5:
Now it is time to grout the gaps. To do this, you need to pick up the rubber wiper and grout and spread it on the table until all the joints are filled.
➤ Step 6:
The mass that is on the tiles should be wiped off with a little water and a sponge. Then clean the tiles again with a cotton cloth.
➤ Step 7:
Now let your table dry well. Then remove the masking tape from the edge of the table and your beautiful mosaic garden table is ready.
