Tiling, be it ceramic or glass amongst other options is a great weather resistant idea. Every few months use a little bit of your favorite tub and tile cleaner and you are back in business season after season. Click through the jump to for more ideas on how to get your project started.

We've been checking out a project in ReadyMade this month by Furniture Designer and Fabricator, Thomas Wold. We saw a similar project last October on the DIY Network's Freeform Furniture and remembered all over again how much we like the idea of tiling our outdoor furniture.

There are many practical applications for a piece like this in an outdoor setting. From the chair the article was constructed about, to benches, planters, stools, tables, flower boxes, storage containers, end tables... the list goes on and on!

You might try variations on the suggested theme and change up your tile or grout color. Although the white tile gives the things you decorate your outdoor space with (plates, food, candles) a blank canvas to pop out again, there are more than enough tile options out there to keep you busy.

No matter if you are using small recycled glass tiles or mini stainless steel tiles, your project is sure to be a hit.

Just remember, anything that could go in your bathroom... can go on your patio or deck.
(Please note, this rule doesn't apply to all items found in said bathroom.)
