Few materials evoke high-end living as simply and effectively as marble. I’m a huge fan of the sophisticated stone and find myself buying everything from lamps to stationary in its’ lavish pattern. A few weeks ago I was eyeing this marble tray from Macy’s but couldn’t justify spending the $79.99 asking price. I decided it would be more economical (and fun) for me to replicate it so this past weekend I gave it a go and absolutely loved the end result! Overall, this project cost me $12 and took less than 15 minutes to complete (not including drying time). This tray is such a great addition to any room and with the holidays coming up, it makes for a beautiful gift! Below are the items you’ll need to make this:
Step 1. Turn the slab over and stick the felt pads on the bottom to give it some lift.
Note: The slab I used was 9″x 12″ and my drawer pulls were 5″. I originally wanted gold or copper drawer pulls but they were all either too expensive or special-order items. And though I still love how the silver ones turned out, you can always spray paint them to give it a more “high-end” look.
Step 2. Measure 1 inch from the side and 2 inches from the top and mark this spot with a small ‘X’ using a marker. This will be where the pulls are glued.
Step 3. Apply the glue to the bottom of the pulls and place onto the marked spots. Using a q-tip, carefully wipe off any excess glue. Let your slab dry overnight and that’s it!
I found a couple different spots for this beauty in the house and loved how it looked anywhere it was placed!
