As you see the table rusted under the original tiles. Rather than throw it out and buy a new one (which would have cost hundreds to replace) I decided to try my luck renewing the top myself.
Sadly the tiles which had previously lived on top were unable to be salvaged.
Firstly, I needed to remove the rust by using a hard wire brush. Once satisfied that all the rust had been removed I used sugar soap to clean away any dirt and grease. Allowing this to dry I then need to seal the table from future elements. Preventing a repeat this.
I used an outdoor paint in black - sutible for metal.
I also wire brushed the chairs and repainted them. (They needed to look their best next to the shiney new table)
While the table dried I smashed my chosen tile into a heavy duty bag using a hammer. (You don't need the bag but it just keeps all the splinters in one place and made it easier to clean up)
For the grouting I used a grout float, but you can use any grouting tool you feel would work better for you.
Smooth the grout onto the desired area and place the tiles into the grout. try not to leave too big a gap between the tiles as will make the end task harder.
Once you are happy with the layout grout over the top by smoothing it onto and in between the tiles. Use the side of the float to take off the excess grout from the top of the tiles.
