If you’ve got marble tastes on a plywood budget, you can have the look you want for much, much less than the real thing.
But you don’t have to stop at marble, these amazing DIYers have created truly beautiful and unique designs that they’re sharing with the world.
Which is a truly awesome thing!
One of the “oldest” faux painting techniques, it’s possible to create the look of marble without the hefty price tag.
Check out what In My Own Style blogger Diane did to the sideboard in her kitchen.
Using a mixture of different paints combined with a glaze, the blogger for Juniper Home created a crystallized mineral look for an IKEA desk to create an eye-catching look for her office.
3. Faux bricks
Sure, we’ve all seen those painted “brick-look” walls, but why not create a 3D version using stucco and tape like the blogger for Do-It-Yourself Design did. Check out her tutorial here.
4. Faux Plaster Finish
Greco-Roman style anyone?
Cyndy, blogger for The Creativity Exchange, refurbished her attic find into a showpiece that mirrors (pun intended) plaster finishes found on many high-priced home decor items.
5. Faux Zinc Finish
Freckled Laundry blogger Jami created a beautiful faux zinc finish for her nightstand using sandpaper and three different types of metallic paint.
Without the hefty price tag of similar looks.
Any of these projects are perfect for a weekend…which one are you going to try?
