Position tile sheets on the table top, to see how you would like to lay them out.
Wipe your table with a wet cloth to make sure it’s clean. Then, take the adhesive spreader and put the adhesive on the table. Choose the spreader that has V-notch.
Put the tile down on the tabletop and gently but firmly at the same time, press the tile to the adhesive. Wipe all the access with a cloth. Try to use something that doesn’t have too many particles (like paper towels don’t work, for example, since they leave small fibers behind and it’s not a good look).
Tile the table top is relatively easy to put together, fun starts at tiling the legs. What worked for me was to add a painters tape to the tile on the legs to prevent it from sliding down.
When the adhesive is completely dry, and oh you’ll know when it is, it’s time for the next messy step – grouting! Cover the tile table with a grout.
