Re-decorate porch pillars
 
2 Attachment(s)
Hi all

I want to jazz up the support pillars for my porch.
I have 3 plain concrete pillars, with grooves running up the length ending in some hideous floral design. (see picture)
I was considering re-decorating them, by wrapping mosaic tiles sheets (see pic) up the length. I was planning to grout the existing pillar, as is, and then basically sticking on the tiles...would this work?
Any other ideas welcome.

Thanks
Hugo

Hawaii?

You can get all sorts of vinyl column wraps. I'd look into hiding them before you try grouting and covering them with tile - seems like a recipe for lots of work and high potential failure rate.
