It’s Fall Yall! Fall is my favorite time of the year to entertain, cook and just enjoy the beautiful weather with friends and family. Today I am sharing one of the most helpful DIY projects for all my cooking and entertaining needs this Fall. DIY tile trivets can now be extra glamorous with The Tile Doctor’s STAINMASTER® Color Grout. I use tile trivets as heat safe protectants on my tables and counter tops. Today we are using The Tile Doctor’s STAINMASTER® Crystal Glass Grout in gold and galaxy. Making tile trivets is great practice for larger DIY home tile projects.
Clear Plastic Wrap
Cover a flat dry surface with clear plastic wrap. Use painters tape to secure the plastic wrap to the table.
Lay your tile square flat on the plastic wrap. You can cut your square into various sizes based on your needs. I used one large 12×12 square and cut a second square in half to create two rectangular trivets.
Prep your grout by mixing the epoxy, grout and glitter flakes. Mix in a circular motion like you were mixing icing.
Apply a blob of grout to the center of the tile. Using pressure and your grout float spread the grout in a diagonal motion. Make sure the grout is pushed into all the cracks. Scrape excess grout off the sides with the icing spatula.
Clean the tile by using a white scrubpad (included in the grout pail) in a circular motion. Buff the tiles with a clean, dry paper towel.
Allow trivets to dry for 24 hours.
Once the trivets are dry flip them over and apply the clear rubber bumpers in each corner.
The Tile Doctor’s STAINMASTER® Crystal Glass Grout is durable and can be used in many different environments. It is ideal for pools, hot tubs, steam areas and other outdoor applications because it is non-shrink and has a high-compression strength. Durable enough to tolerate harsh chemicals, it’s also a good choice for kitchens, bathrooms, floor and wall tiles, and anywhere that glass tile grout will be expected to stand up to heavy-duty cleaners. Its formulation allows for simple water clean-up, and it is much easier to use than traditional epoxy grout.
