DIY Marble Tray

Beauty/ DIY

I have been on the hunt for a nice tray for my vanity and Alex drawer for a long time now. Either the ones I find just don’t match the style I’m looking for,  or they are unnecessarily expensive . On a random trip to Lowes to pick up some home supplies, I spotted some marble tiles that weren’t sold by the box and decided I would attempt to make my own marble tray.  This DIY version cost me less than $25 to make and took about 30 minutes.  

DIY Marble Tray

Supplies needed:
Piece of marble 
Handles these are straight bar style kitchen cabinet pulls also from Lowes
Industrial Strength Adhesive
Package vinyl Bumpers
Measuring tape or Ruler
Pencil
Q-tips

Steps:
Turn the piece of marble over and mark where you want the bumpers (feet)

Once you have the placement marked apply the bumpers, these are self adhesive but for extra hold I applied a dot of the E600 industrial strength adhesvice as well.

That’s it! Now you can decorate your new tray and place on your dresser, counter or vanity.

    Great idea! I need to get a storage unit first, but then I’ll do this. And I don’t need the pull bars since I don’t move it once it’s in place so even less $. Thanks for this wonderful project!
