*When picking up your supplies, your tile choice is going to be very important.

Once you finish your grid layout, you are going to have to track down all of the tile colors you need.  You might end up buying tiles from more than one location, so be sure that they are all the same thickness and the same finish!

If they are different thicknesses your table will not be flat and smooth!

And your table will look very strange if your tiles are a combination of glossy and matte finish.  (Unless of course, you planned it that way…in which case you might be able to create a neat effect!)

The tiles I purchased were sheets of one inch backsplash tiles, which means they came attached to a mesh backing.

If you purchase tiles like this, you can simply cut them apart using scissors or a razor blade.
