You will need:

Coffee table


Ceramic pen

Edging strip

Black paint

Paint brush


Panel pins



Choose two designs for the pattern on the tiles and then draw on with the ceramic pen. Leave tiles to dry.

Paint the table with black paint.

Arrange the tiles on the tabletop, keeping the design random, combine patterned and plain tiles. When you’re happy with the design take a photo. Tip: Use the photo as your guide as you stick the tiles in place with tile adhesive, we stuck our tiles snuggly against each other. Leave to dry.
