One of my favorite things about DIY projects is that you can make things that look a lot more expensive than they are. I have been eyeing some marble and brass shelving online for a small nook in our bathroom, but they were a bit too pricey (especially when I was wanting a two shelf situation), so I thought I would MacGyver up a situation of my own instead! The great thing is, making them is a lot easier than you’d think!
–6” x 12” marble tiles (you’ll use 2 per shelf and there are 10 tiles in this particular lot)
-6” x 24” wooden board (have the lumber place cut it for you or use a jigsaw to cut)
-Liquid Nails adhesive (use a caulking gun to apply)
-shelf brackets of choice (I used these and painted them gold)
-painter’s tape (optional)
It’s great to have the extra shelf space in the bathroom, and I love how they turned out! How pretty would these be as open shelving in a kitchen too? With the supplies that I bought the price averages out to about $40 per shelf so you may have thought you couldn’t afford marble shelving in your home, buuuut now you know you can! You’re welcome…xo Laura
