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.
While Kate was packing up her stuff to head back to college this fall, she did a little cleaning up and discarding of items she no longer needed or wanted. Her bag of discards included this old 5 X 7 Acrylic Box Frame.
For reasons only known to the Kismet angel that sits on my shoulder, I saw the opportunity to transform the acrylic box into a little tray for my desk. And more importantly, to try my hand at marbleizing.
My friend Sherry at The Savvy Apron had great success with the technique, so I was encouraged to try it. I followed her tips and am absolutely thrilled with this faux marble tray that I made.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.

So, here’s the video I produced to show you the process. Originally it was a bit on the long side, so I shortened it by speeding it up. However, I think you can still get an idea of how I did the marbleizing from the video.
Hey, I have an idea…why don’t you pin it for future reference?
So my friends, this was a quick, easy and fairly immediately gratifying project. Give it a whirl!
