The TikTok Inspired Tile Table Is The Next Big Thing

Let’s admit it, TikTok does have quite a lot of great ideas floating around on its platform. I can’t help but praise the innovative idea of the tile table trend – not intrigued? Trust me, just look at how cute this is:

The Sorry Girls have recreated the TikTok tile table trend and shared each step of the working process! They have started completely from scratch (very impressive) but for those who aren’t as handy dandy (guilty), altering a piece of furniture that is due for a make-over or buying an ideal piece that suits this project are also some great options.

If you are a DIY guru, here’s what you will need to make this exact piece:

  • 2”x2” square tiles

  • 2”x4” pieces of wood

  • Wood glue

  • Wood screws

  • Drill

  • Saw

  • 90-degree clamps (optional)

  • Kreg jig (optional)

  • Grout

  • Tile adhesive

  • Square notch adhesive trowel

  • Tile float

  • Tile spacers

  • Sponge

  • 4 adjustable furniture feet


Once you’ve got the desired table, the fun tiling starts! Ideally, you would use a square-notched trowel to make lines in your adhesive and make sure you don’t squish out of the grout lines. Tile the top, sides and legs of the table, and the underside of the table if you want to go all out! Let the adhesive dry for at least 24 hours.

Lastly, grouting time. Pick any colour that goes well with your tiles, mix up the grout with some water to get a peanut butter consistency, and then use a tile float to push the grout into all of the lines. Use a sponge to scrape off the excess grout and let that dry for another 24 hours – I know, patience is key. Now you should have a stunning TikTok inspired tile table of your dreams!
