DIY Marble Tray

Spring is approaching and so is spring cleaning. Throw all your junk out and make room for a simple DIY marble tray to spruce up your place.

Materials needed:

  • Scrap Marble Tile
  • Metallic Acrylic Paint
  • Synthetic Paint Brush
  • Stone Sealer
  • Hammer
  • Sandpaper
  • Safety Goggles
  • Utility Gloves
  • Old Newspapers
  • Paper Plate (for acrylic paint)
  • Paper Towels
  • Rubber Bumpers

Step one: Cover your work area with old newspaper. With safety goggles and utility gloves on hammer clean edges for a natural rustic edge.  If you happen to get your hands on a large tile, cover whole tile with old newspapers and hammer away to break large tile into smaller pieces.

Step two: Use hammer and sandpaper to soften any sharp edges (I didn’t have sandpaper in the video).

Step three: Seal your marble. Let sealant cure overnight. Wipe off residue with paper towels or a rag.

Step four: Paint edges with metallic paint of your choice. This may take two or three coats of paint.

Step five: Add rubber bumpers to the bottom of your marble and voila, finished! You can reinforce the staying power of the rubber bumpers with super glue.
