DIY | marble coffee table tray10.11.2015
every now and then one of my DIY endeavours doesn't go to plan, this week's projects took waaay more time than I'd bargained for so they're not quite ready to share with you.
and so this marble tray is coming out from the archives today! it's a little makeover from the start of the year that I never got around to sharing. I wanted a little tray to use as a backdrop to style some of my belongings so I figured I'd make a simple version with contact paper. it's a perfect size for leaving on a coffee table or nightstand to display your candles and trinkets.
lovers of marble eat your heart out- this one is dedicated to you.
a square or rectangle of mdf or wood
roll out the contact paper and mark around your tray with a pencil on the back. add another 1.5" to this measurement and cut out with a craft knife or scissors.
peel off the backing and lay your tray directly onto the sticky side, turn over and push out any air bubbles. flip it back over and fold over the 1.5" excess (tucking the corners in tightly for nice sharp edges.)
easy peasy right? you can do this on an even bigger scale covering entire coffee tables- ikea has some really affordable basic table tops that are perfect for this type of makeover.
