Tiled side table

An impressive side table design built using MDF panels and white tiles.





The project


I created this tiled side table with a cool shape. I've been eyeing similar tables for a long time but due to the price I could never justify buying one. Once I saw Geneva Vanderzeil's inspirational tiled desk I knew I could make something similar, so the project began.


Using a circular saw, I cut the MDF panels into individual pieces and screwed all the pieces together.




I applied the tiles with Dunlop 2kg Wall And Floor Tile Adhesive and then used Davco 1.5kg #67 Cashmere Sanitized® Colourgrout to finish it off.








Applying tiles all over the MDF panels means that the side table can stand in different positions. I was able to save $575 by creating this myself instead of buying a new one for around $725.











More inspiration for your home


Mari also created this European-style mosaic tile table by upcycling a weathered piece of furniture.
