DIY- Marble Side Table

Thursday, 19 February 2015

I've been changing my bedroom around for so long now but I still had this side table that just did not fit in with my rooms decor!
I bought this habitat bedside table years ago but it has never gone with any of my decor. It has this piece of wood in it which comes out and switches to either light or dark wood. So after reading so many of your blog articles on DIY marbling I bought myself some vinyl marble to do my own, its so easy to do that I thought I would share with all you beauties.

Step 1
The first step is a bit of an obvious one, collect all of the things you will need so that you are all ready to go and won't be half way through and think 'I need a pencil' so have to stop what you're doing to look for one, it just makes everything so much easier to just prepare early.
So for this you will need:
- A pencil
- The thing you are wrapping (duh)
- Scissors or a box cutter
- Tape measure or ruler
- The marble vinyl (I bought mine here)

Step 2
Measure the thing you are wrapping, including the sides so you can do some kind of present wrapping technique. Make sure you mark it with the pencil so you know where to cut.

Step 3
Once you've measured, put the thing you are wrapping over it just to make sure it fits properly, I had this problem, I cut it before I checked and had to re-do it. Once you've done that and it fits nicely, cut out along the lines you drew, try and cut as straight as possible.

Step 4
Once you have cut it out and it looks all lovely and ready to fold over, place the thing you're wrapping under the vinyl. Then slowly peal the paper off the bottom and cover evenly, then with the corners pretend you're wrapping a Christmas present, do that trick. I added some sellotape on mine as well because it didn't stick to the wood very well so feel free to do that too (excuse my terrible nails).

And there you have it, it's that easy and looks so cute with my bedroom!

Do you have any DIY tricks?
