Looks fantastic Alexis,

I have an outdoor coffee table that the tempered glass just shattered last summer with nothing touching it. It scared me when it happened and I still don't know why. I was thinking of doing a similar repair but using ceramic tile for weather resistance. They sell tiles sometimes at 99cents each when on sale and I figured I only need about 8 12 x 12s to cover the top and I also have a wet tile saw to trim the tiles because it is not a rectangle it has some curves.

Don't fear your tools, pay attention and respect the tools and avoid injury.

I've used linoleum for counter tops in the past. It isn't really robust enough for hard use, but for light duty, it works nicely, and isn't nearly as heavy as tile. The variety of colors and design is amazing. I'd always want to tuck the edges under some sort of trim because the edges are particularly susceptible to damage and tearng.

The political rules are generally suspended on the Totally Random Chat thread, but keep it polite. Hope the mods remember that. Generally though, it's more personal chat.
