My husband put together the table for me and cut a piece of wood for the base of the tile. Then he screwed it in place and painted the wood with a sealer.
I placed the tile on the table and after I was happy with the placement, glued the tile in place.
Wednesday I mixed the grout, and grouted the tiles. Later that evening I cleaned up the messy parts and this morning sealed the grout. I think it looks pretty good for a first effort.
What I would change? I would make the framing tiles a bit wider, so my grout lines wouldn't be so thick. They should only be about 1/4 inch and mine are about a 1/2 inch. But it's still better than having to cut tile that turned out too big. Now that would not be good! Tomorrow I'll start back on my rose.
