Found a nice little wooden table that had been discarded after a church's "garage" sale, mosaic'd it to be a plant stand on my porch. Then, duh!...realized wood and mosaic don't work outside. Sawed off the legs...a coffee table! Got a new sofa, doesn't look right together. Put the table back out on the porch in hopes all the tile will start to pop off on it's own and I'll re-mosaic. NOPE...nothing is happening. I'm in FL...lots of moisture...have had several freezes and then warm (80's) again. How long will this take? Can I remove it all with a hammer???

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

My goodness - poor little homeless table. FLAG and I mosaic wood for outside all the time. I KNOW it's against the rules, but I don't follow rules all the time. Can't you use it for an inside plant stand, and find another coffee table to mosaic? If you want to remove tiles from it, try lifting w/a screwdriver. What adhesive did you used?
