Faux Marble Tray-an Easy DIY to Make

Faux Marble Tray-an Easy DIY to Make

"Can you believe that this great ‘marble tray’ is made from one of those very inexpensive acrylic frames? I’ve always loved the look of marble. As such, it’s no surprise to me that this material is quite popular in the design world right now. Read on and see how to DIY this Faux Marble Tray. I have to tell you that I had such a fun time doing this little marble tray and now am looking for more opportunities to marbleize stuff. It was very simple and forgiving. If a mistake is made, then you could just paint over it and start again."

Materials List

  • An item to marbleize
  • White paint to cover your item. I used Rustoleum 2X Spray Paint White
  • Acrylic paint in white and black. I used Acrylic Paint 2 oz., Snow White by Americana and
    Acrylic Paint 2 oz., Lamp Black by Americana.
  • Acrylic paint in gold for trim. I used DecoArt Dazzling Metallics Paint, 2 oz., Glorious Gold
  • Feather
  • Sponge, I did cut a little triangle out of to get in the tight spaces…It looked like a little pac-man.
  • Spray bottle with water
  • Paper towel
  • Frogtape Delicate Masking Tape(10-Pack), Yellow, which worked perfectly! I was very hesitant to put tape on my recently painted/marbleized surface so I did a test run by spray painting a piece of plastic and then putting this tape on it. I was so very happy when I was able to remove the tape without pulling of any of the recently applied pai

NotesI have produced a wee video that is available on my site that shows how I marbleized this tray
