I’ve been working on my outdoor space this year. Last month I made some DIY Subway Tile Planters and a privacy screen out of old doors that were sitting in my garage.
I had an outdoor table in my yard that was very weathered and worn. And since I am working on my tiling skills (I bought a tile saw last month too), I wanted to update that table with a subway tile top!
And actually, this is a very fast project! All you need is a table, some subway tile, molding, spray paint, adhesive and grout and a tile saw. Tile saws are actually less than you might expect. I bought mine for under $100 from Lowe’s.
**Here’s the tip when cutting subway tile. Cut the tile upside down, with the back facing up. That way you don’t chip the edge of the tile with the saw. It took me awhile to figure this out!
**Another tip — always wear safety goggles. The tiles chip and little pieces of tile fly all over the place.
So here is how I made the table top:
- I took the original table and added a thin sheet of plywood to the top. I screwed that down. I prefer screws to nails because they are less likely to pop back up later as the furniture wears.
**And another tip — your local hardware store probably has a big saw. I asked Lowes if they would cut the plywood to fit and they were happy to. Just go in with the exact dimensions and this will save you a lot of time!!
- The next thing I did was I added some molding around the edges of the table.
- Then I laid out the tile on the table. I decided to add a row of full-size subway tile around the outside and then mini-subway tiles to the inside of the table.
- Once I did this, I could see how many tiles I needed to cut to complete the top of the table.
- Then I cut the tiles.
- I added the adhesive to the plywood with a trowel and put down the tiles. The adhesive takes a little while to set, so you have time to move the tiles around and get them all situated.
- Then let the table sit overnight to let the adhesive dry.
- The next day I added the grout. You need a grout float tool for this, to smoosh the grout into the spaces. Once the grout is applied, you can start cleaning the excess off with a big sponge. If you wait too long, then the grout sets up and you have to scrub the grout off of the tiles.
- After 24 hours, if there is still a film of grout residue, you can clean the tiles with a special spray.
- And that is it!! Now I have a new table. And best of all — it looks new and it was an inexpensive way to add a beautiful piece to my outdoor decor!!
Plus — working with these two subway tile projects has helped get my sills ready for a BIG subway tile kitchen project, coming up soon!!!
Yay! I love learning new things!!

It’s not my first time to pay a visit this site, i am visiting this web site dailly and get pleasant information from here daily.
Hey! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with
hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended
up losing months of hard work due to no backup. Do you
have any methods to protect against hackers?
Hi there! Someone in my Myspace group shared this website with us so
I came to check it out. I’m definitely loving the information. I’m
book-marking and will be tweeting this to my followers!
Great blog and excellent design and style.
Wow! Your table turned out so professional looking. This is a great way to get my feet wet with tiling. Great post!
Shawn b. says
Would love to build my son a new bed!!!
Jennifer Fitzgibbons says
I would actually like to take this project, making over a table with the subway tile. Another DIY project that I would like to get done is to make new outdoor cushions for our outdoor seating. Just waiting to find some outdoor fabric for a good price.
would love to redo my masterbath it needs to be updated gorgeous table what talent
I have an old oak dining room table and chairs that need some serious updating!

Amy Tong says
I have a small back yard that I need to re-do make it “usable”? It’s totally an empty space and I would love to put a set of outdoor furniture there. I also plant to dig out a few old plants on the side walk at the entrance way, then do concrete to make it wider. It’s quite a project but I think it’ll look really nice afterwards. I can totally use some helps from Lowe’s!
I want to pull off old wallpaper and repaint my guest room.
Amanda Sakovitz says

Patricia Tercek says
Walking through Lowe’s gives me TONS of ideas for repurposing items. We used trash can lids for ceiling light fixtures in our recently remodeled basement with an industrial theme (painted all the floorboards black which cut the cost DRASTICALLY from having drywall hung or a drop ceiling installed!)
Our little one is about to turn one and getting ready to play outside. So I think a dog run is in order for us LOL
We are getting ready to purchase a home. To make it in our price range, it’s going to have to be a fixer upper. A Lowe’s gift card would be heaven sent!
I’d love to build some shelves to organize my sewing room!
I love this idea and can you imagine the different colors you could make with this idea.

If we win the Lowes gift card we are going to use it to buy tons of pvc pipe, silver tarps, and silver duct tape to build a huge UFO for Halloween in our yard. If there is any money left (I’m sure there will be, Lowes has great prices) I would put the rest to making a tile back splash behind the stove. LOVE the post and I’m a sucker for tile!
Love this idea!

I need to paint yet another room in our new house. Right now it has ugly green matte and gloss stripes. I’m hoping a couple coats of paint will remove the layer difference.

Amy Bounds says
The table is gorgeous!

I would like to paint my house. I just bought it last year, and it has not been painted in at least 20 years…. $100 would help me get started.
Melissa W says
Would love to make a side table for the pool area or a bench for the mud room. I’ve been nagging hubby forever.
Johnna Wilson says
We are in the process of setting up a nursery for our baby boy so there are tons of DIY projects I have on my to-do list that a $100 gift card would be great for!
kim derusha says
I could definitely use a Lowe’s gift certificate for my many home projects on the list. Your subway tile table is adorable!!
Your subway tile table turned out great. It makes me think, “I could do that!”
Thank you so much for the giveaway! I love the table redo, so cute! I would make my son a toddler bed that I’ve been wanting to mark off my to do list forever!
Jenna W says
Very pretty! Just a warning though, I did something similar to this a few years ago and it didn’t survive the winter very well (I’m in Missouri). I hope yours survives better than mine!
Lori DeJesus says
I would love to make a sewing/craft table so I can move my sewing machine from the dinning room table 😉
After having to re-do my daughter’s floor last month, it left three different floors showing in the doorway from my dauthers room and my kitchen. It looks aweful. lol I need to change my floor in the kitchen, bad. This would help with that cost so much!
Love this project!
Katarina Kopasek says
I’d like to make a window seat/storage area in our attic.

LOVE the table – it’s so beautiful and unique!
i love your new table – it is gorgeous!!!! i’m in the process of remodeling my kitchen so the 100 bucks to lowe’s would go perfect 🙂
I love all your ideas and this one turned out great, as usual!
I’d like to makeover a dresser in my guest room.

Your table looks fantastic!
Love this. What a great idea for a outdoor table.

I would love to create a craft center in our basement for my kids & me!
Keri Michaelis says
The table is beautiful! I am inspired!
Sarah J. says
Thanks for the subway tile cutting tips!! We’re thinking about a backsplash in the near future, so it will definitely come in handy…
I would put it towards the ever growing expenses in painting and fixing the exterior of my house.
I did some massive organizing/purging this summer while on break from work (school). The only room that is not painted done is my bedroom. I have other DIY projects for the classroom too. Thanks for the chance!
I’ve been dying to “reinvent” my dining room table!
Donna O'Neil says
I would make a storage case for toys or add shelves in the closet.
I need to fix lots of paint scrapes around the house.
Sara Southard @ Fol-de-rol & Frippery says
BTW, the Pinterest link doesn’t actually take me to a board I can follow and a search didn’t turn up what I needed either. I follow Lowes on Pinterest, does that work?
Sara Southard @ Fol-de-rol & Frippery says
I would really like to make some bookshelves for my library/home office!
Janell C says
I’d love to build something to organize the garage!
Your new tile topped table looks great.
I have a tile saw and just love it, it makes cutting tile so much easier but mine is a wet saw that I’ve had a couple of years. It has cut many. many tiles, don’t know what I’d do without it.
Wow- I love how it turned out! Id like to do something similar. I’ve been meaning to create a nicer space outside and I think that this fall I might finally do something.
It’s an easy one but we really need to paint my craft room. Catch is that the room is full of furniture and it’s not going to be easy to get to the walls.
Melissa @ Little Raindrops says
Beautiful! I can’t wait to find a suitable table and try this for myself. Thanks!!
Beautiful. My BF did this to her kitchen table with sunflower tiles. It’s so gorgeous. Also when you do tile the kitchen, I saw on Pinterest they put the outlets under the cabinets to give the walls a seemless finish. It was brilliant!
Wow- I love how it turned out!
Michele @ The Scrap Shoppe says
I *love* the table redo, Jen! What a great idea!
I would love a Lowe’s gift card to buy some paint and wood for my living room. Its time for a makeover!
Love the table! I’ve been trying to get up the courage to tackle a subway tile backsplash in my bathroom.
Shelly Loving says
I’d get some organizational things for my CRAFT ROOM!!!
ChrisOis Olson says
I want to build a breakfast bar in my kitchen and Lowe’s is my main go-to place for everything I will need!
Can’t wait to see your kitchen. I’m hoping to retile mine.
I need to come up with some creative storage solutions for my bathroom/laundry room.
I would love to make an entry bench for our entry way. Your table redesign is gorgeous!
Jessica M says
We just bought a house so a lowes gift card will go far for any one of the DIY projects we’re hoping to do!!
You make it look so easy! I would have never guessed a tile saw was so inexpensive. My little Ikea table would be perfect for this! Thanks!
Liz F. says

Karen Nahas says
I have a few DIY projects that I want to do including a Mason Jar Chandelier and welcome sign for the front entry way.
Gorgeous table! No need for coasters! I really want to tackle putting in a patio in my backyard! I just got a fence installed–and now need to have steps and a patio back there so we don’t have to walk all the way around the house to use the backyard.
Jen, you table looks amazing. I can’t believe it is the same table. I love it. You’ve given me an idea for some tables I have. Great job!
Love your blog! I have so many projects that I want to tackle! I would love to convert my kids “playroom” to a craft/ sewing room. They have outgrown the need for a playroom.
Jackie Cornett says
We have a bathroom that needs a facelift and another special room that we’ll have to start working on soon!
Lisa S. says
The DIY project I want to work on, is refinishing an old metal glider swing I have. It needs to be sanded and repainted. :o)
Hey Jen… Great table! I love white subway tile. I also love that door screen you have in the background… awesome!
That’s fabulous! The bathroom is my next project.
I’d really like to work on a playroom for my basement.

Deb Warnat says
We’ve got our first grandbaby on the way and spiffing up the nursery is a must!
Julie Howe says
New tile in bathroom!
Your table looks great and it should be very durable. You were smart to redo something you already own.
I can think of many diy projects around the house!
Carla F. says
I need new kitchen counter tops ata budget price. I have formica in mind, but I am thinking that I may be able to find an alternative that would be easy care, and long lasting too. I have not decided or found something that I would love yet.
My parents are moving, and I would like to use the giftcard to help my mom fix up her new yard.
Gorgeous Table. What a fabulous idea!
Hit Post too soon! I have a jewelry armoire I would like to refinish!
I’d love to fix my daughter’s bed. It broke during our move.

Marilyn Hawk says
Amazing, it makes me want to try it out on my much needed back splash.
I would love to make a pucture frame jewley holder, plus other small updates to help woth organization!
Beautiful table! Thanks for the tiling tutorial, I have some tiling projects I’d like to tackle.
The table looks beautiful. I’m repurposing a tea cart and considering using some colorful tile for it’s top. Sounds like I’d use the same concept.
i’m about to move into a new house in a month so we have a million projects ready to take on! great tutorial! 🙂
Mary S - Big Mamma's Craftin House says
Love your table. It looks so expensive. You inspire me so much.
Bee Gee says
I plan to mosaic a table top for two wrought iron table frames I have. can’t wait to see how they turn out!
New bathroom fan and a dehumidifier are on our wish list big time right now!
If you end up with dried grout haze because, say, your dog figures out how to open the fridge and you have an huuuuuge mess to clean up all the sudden, a Mr. Clean magic eraser will take it off easy-peasy! Just check in a hidden spot it doesn’t scrach your tile first!
That is great to know!!!!
Nichole Avila says
I would LOVE to tile our shower stall. I keep seeing everyone use title and it turns out wonderfully like you! Maybe someday I will get brave 😉
This looks great! We just did our kitchen and have a lot left over … I wonder what I could get my hands on now!
I’d like to update my chicken coop.
Kris Donegan says
I have been wanting to add some pizazz to our room with some fresh paint & some shelving for all of our nick nacs!
