A STEP BY STEP ON HOW TO CREATE A DIY FAUX MARBLE SIDE TABLE. THIS IS A STYLISH + EASY + INEXPENSIVE MAKEOVER AND THE PERFECT WAY TO HIDE IMPERFECTIONS ON OLD BEAT UP FURNITURE. [VIDEO]
Happy Tuesday SI family. Thanks for joining me today and I hope your week is off to a great start! Have you ever been out shopping – seen something you really liked – and said: “I can make that!”? There have been SO many times this has happened to me and usually, I get home and … you guessed it… I do absolutely nothing. Well, today I’m sharing how I took action and one-upped the inspiration piece I found at Homesense. 🙂
Working with old furniture, I’ve come across a TON of stuck-on contact paper. I’ve removed it from the inside of drawers, dresser tops and even the front face of a few pieces. So, I have to admit I’m a little surprised I ADDED contact paper to today’s makeover.
But seeing how stunning this DIY Marble Table turned out, I have to admit, contact paper has its place.
It comes in trendy patterns and designs – I’m loving the marble-, it’s easy to wipe down and keep clean, some brands are strong enough to cover kitchen and bathroom counters, and it’s a simple way to hide existing imperfections or stains on your old beat-up furniture.
A perfect example is this stained and scratched Milk Painted table that’s been hanging around for years. Not so pretty right?
Now check this out… it doesn’t even look like the same table, does it?

DIY MARBLE TABLE::
I created a short video tutorial on how to apply this faux marble here.
1:: Start with a clean and lightly sanded piece.
2:: Paint the table Gold. I used this gold metallic here and sprayed it on with a paint sprayer.
3:: Once 100% dry, I added on the faux marble contact paper. [step by step video below]
I can’t tell you how happy I am with this makeover.
The dollar store contact paper was $1.25, the table was salvaged/free and I honestly don’t think I even used $4 worth of paint but I thought I’d be generous. Total $5 Makeover!
And of course, I had to test if this paper was easily wipeable and it is. The water just beads up so there should be no issues with sweaty beverages or spills.
And here’s my $99 Homesense inspiration piece.
I think I one-upped the gold Homesense version by adding the faux marble inset. What do you think? 😉
My DIY brain is already thinking of another dozen projects I can use this marble paper on!
