Tiles are also great at building different types of furniture, like tables. For inspiration, check out this gorgeous side table built using MDF panels and white tiles. Innovative Workshop member @lifestylebymari applied the tiles with Dunlop 2kg Wall And Floor Tile Adhesive and then used Davco 1.5kg #67 Cashmere Sanitized® Colourgrout to finish the project.
