I am pretty sure that I’m not alone in this sentiment, but I looooove the look of marble. My dream would be a marble countertop in my kitchen (although I know they aren’t as stain resistant as other stone options), but since that renovation is still a long way off, I’ll have to get by with my marble cheeseboard instead.
I was wondering what else I could make marble to add that textured look to a kitchen space. Since almost everyone has a utensil holder somewhere in their kitchen, I thought that would be a great place to start.
The key to this makeover is finding a realistic marble contact paper (I chose this one) to use on your utensil holder.
I just cut a piece that was a little taller than I needed, applied the contact paper to the outside of the utensil holder (thankfully, you can peel if off and start over if your placement is wrong), and then ran an X-Acto knife along the top and bottom edges to trim the excess paper. Done!
Of course, the great thing about marble contact paper is that it is a fraction of the cost of real marble, but you still get the fancy look of the real thing. What other items would you cover with the contact paper? xo. Laura
