Like the majority us of I spend far to much time browsing Pinterest lusting over luxe interiors, mermaid hair inspiration and perfect outfits (it’s not just me is it?) – and I recently put together this post on marble finishes. I decided to give my room a little refresh and wanted to incorporate some marble somehow, I was browsing eBay and came across this Marble Self-Adhesive for £3.49 a roll and knew I had bagged a winner!
First of all I was just unrolling the adhesive and taking blog/Instagram pictures on there as it makes a wonderful background – but then I was looking at my Ikea MALM Drawers could do with jazzing up so I decided to add the adhesive on top (again, also great for blog pictures as it’s a flat surface!).
The procedure took me less than five minutes, here’s how:
– Turn the adhesive over (on the non-marble side) and place it against your surface of choice – mark out the edges of surface so you know where to cut to.
– Cut the adhesive down to the correct size. (I kept any leftover adhesive for blog props/pictures etc).
– Match two corners of the adhesive up on one end of the surface, then slowly unravel the adhesive to stick down. I was using one hand to pull the roll of adhesive to stick down, whilst going over the already stuck adhesive with a ruler to air out any bubbles.
Et voila, a new marble surface in under 5 minutes for less than £5 – who’da thought it, eh?!
Will you be trying this at home? I’d love to know if you go ahead and do it too!
