Well neither of us had ever really done anything like that before so we were taking on a lot! Lucky for my mom, I watch a lot of HGTV and had a basic idea of what I was doing.
First we had to sand the surface and prep with a tile grout. The glue drys fairly quick so you will want to go a section at a time and lay the tiles as you go.
Isn't the wood beautiful? The different tones in the tile mesh beautifully with the wood the side table is made out of.

Now you'll want to prep for the grout! Which we haven't actually gotten to yet. But when I do I'll show you for sure!
Pre grout looks pretty good though, if I do say so myself! I'm so happy that I could help my mom with this big project, and that she is going to have an updated bedroom!
I'm so excited to see the finished project. Which will hopefully be this weekend so cross your fingers!
