- Need a project that will take only one hour but give you a lifetime of use and pleasure? A marble tray is elegant and useful. This is a great hostess gift.
WHAT YOU NEED:
1 marble tile
2 inexpensive cabinet pulls
Spray paint - I used Rustoleum in metallic silver
Adhesive: I like e600
- Work in a well ventilated area. Cover the surrounding area with a drop cloth to prevent overspray. Paint inexpensive ($1.99) pulls in a metallic finish to resemble stainless, brass or other metal that complements the veins in your marble tile. Move the can of Rust-Oleum® in a back-and-forth motion, slightly overlapping each stroke. Allow to dry for 24 hours. Flip handles over once fully dry and repeat the painting process. Allow to dry.
- Attach the two painted handles to your marble tile with a maximum strength adhesive glue. Allow to dry for 24 hours. Use your finished tray as an appetizer tray, a bathroom organizer, on a coffee table, a table centerpiece and more.
- If you are more experienced you can use a stone cutting bit to drill holes where your handles go and countersink the screws. Attach the handles with screws from the bottom. I use felt or cork pads to cover the holes.
