I was looking for something to do with some of my spare time and also to cover two of my tables that had water stains and other cosmetic problems. I have decided to build two mosaic table covers. This tutorial is for the first cover I made - Super Mario.
You can turn it into a new table or make it the size that fits your table.
Hardware you will need:
-Small hammer (1-0.5 pound)
-2 Tubes of white silicone sealant (That's what I've used - you can use the clear type)
-Black spray paint
-20 Small wood nails (1" lenght)
-37" * 37" Plywood (0.5" thick)
-4 x 37" * 1" Plywood for frame (0.5" thick)
-0.8" Glass mosaic stones - ~1498 Black ~153 White ~310 Blue ~340 Red ~8 Yellow - Total of 2209 stones.
** I don't know the prices for these materials in the US but I paid about 70$ for the mosaic stones, 20$ for the plywood and already had the sealant, nails and spray.
** You can use different kinds of materials to glue the stones - plastic glue, mosaic adhesive or other types of glues.
** Yellow and red stones are more expensive than other colors.
** It is not recomended to use MDF instead of plywood because of its weight and poor water resistance.
