Cabinets, Furniture, Woodworks/Add a new surface to a wood island initially for indoors
I have an island that was in my kitchen on the patio. There is wood or wood paneling of some type around the bottom. The top has the white tile squares.
I want to preserve the wood around the island before it degrades too much with an outdoor type surface that resists water and weather.
Is that possible? I was thinking about the peel and stick tiles. Would that work?
Nice to hear from you.
Sounds like you have some great ideas.
I think the tiles would work but I would make sure the wood surface is well sealed before applying.
Paint will seal the wood just fine. I would use an oil based enamel.
Also although the tiles are self stick I would still use some flooring glue.
This is very easy.
Get a quart of the glue (just tell the hardware what you are doing), and get the applicator (again ask for the correct one for the glue.)
Work one side at a time. Apply the glue to the island one side at a time. Peel the tiles and stick.
PS get back if needed
