Tile isn’t just for floors! You can tile just about anything, as long as it’s a hard, flat surface. Often times, furniture surfaces get damaged from water (a plant sitting on it, for instance) or from wear and tear. Instead of getting rid of whatever it is…tile it! You can fix up the rest of it, too, if needed – and all that will be planned the same time. Not only will your piece look new, it’ll be something you can be proud of because you fixed it yourself! And even better…the surface will be pretty indestructible for more wear and tear – or plants!
Square or surfaces with 90 degree angles are definitely easier to tile than circular or round surfaces, but we can always make it work! We’ll just need to be crafty about the tile you select.
How do you get started?
Hit the “Request A Class” button and give Kim the details for your project! She will call or email you within 24 hours to get any additional information. She’ll also need photos of your project, plus dimensions, which you can email to her once she contacts you. Kim will then work with you to make a plan of action and set up a class time! Initial calls will be over the phone, along with email correspondence; actual class time will be over FaceTime or Zoom (your choice).
What do you need?
One week prior to the scheduled class, Kim will provide a list of everything you will need, as well as suggestions for where to find everything (she’ll email you links – but of course you can search on your own!) The biggest must-have is a sink nearby (you’ll need to mix/spread/clean up grout most likely) – and you may need to have access to a few tools, depending on what your piece requires. And the budget will depend mostly on you and what you pick out for tile!
How much will it cost?
We’ll work out a price once we determine the details. A single session can be as low as $100, but you may need more than one session to finish your project (it definitely will require drying time)! Initial session will likely be 1-2 hours, and plan to work on the project in addition to the session.
Note: Funding may be available for furniture projects! This is something we will look into prior to your booking!
