My boyfriend and I bought a lot of new furniture when we moved into our place, and this was one piece. These tile tables were on sale because they were the last left in the store, but they had really really ugly & boring tiles on them.. we figured we would just replace them and that would be fine. Well, it's been about 2 months, and nothings happened with the tile shopping.. sooo my boyfriend went away for the weekend, and I raided my fabric stash.. I covered all of the individual tiles by glueing the fabric to the back.. The pic makes the fabric look way lighter than it really is, and its a kind of navy blue/black tye dye.. looks AWESOME now.. im so happy =D
I wish I had taken a better before pic of this.. but it's too late now... I took one picture to show my boy what I was doing to our table, and luckily I got some of the old tile in it

Wow! That looks fantastic! Amazing! Great! What an awesome idea! And if it ever gets too dirty, you can just rip it off and recover. I almost thought hat it was nylon stretched over it, but I like the fabric better. Far more sturdy. I really want to go find a table like that now!

thx guys  Cheesy
yah, i didnt use a lot of glue, because we have parties quite a bit, and drinks get spilled, so i can just pull it off, throw it in the wash, and glue it back on.. that lil bit of work is worth it to me

I will change my mind on something petty as a whim

That looks really kick ass!  Funny thing is...  My soon to be mother in law makes her own wall paper, and she made some as she was experimenting that looks almost like that.  The texture and such is pretty much the same, but the color was a lighter blue, almost a brighter ocean blue.  Awesome idea though!

What about just covering the whole table with polyurethane.. does that work on fabric?
That way you don't have to keep taking the squares off
