DIY MARBLE MAKEOVER

BEFORE


So, we have this LACK coffee table in our living space that has acted as a dining table, an easel, a play table, a party table...need I say more?
 It's from IKEA, I believe it was an original investment of $30. You can still buy it here

What's pictured above is an oil cloth, which I will hold onto. Oil cloth is another great makeover, over a fun addition to a kids table. Add chalk and let them go nuts, it will wipe off easily!

I needed something lighter to add to our space, and marble is everywhere, so I began the research and came up with whats pictured below.




This product delivered. It did exactly what it was supposed to do AND it was fairly easy!! You can get the same one I used here.  I ordered the double roll and went to work. Measure first to determine how much you will need! 

It's pretty simple, just peel back a little of the backing and place the sticky part down on whatever surface you plan on covering. Then slowly begin to pull the backing away as you stick the vinyl down section by section smoothing any air bubbles as you go. It is somewhat reposition-able so I was able to gently lift and reposition where necessary. 

The materials necessary are: Scissors and or an X-acto knife, your vinyl of choice, a straight edge for smoothing out any bubbles, and PATIENCE. Our coffee table took about 1.5 rolls. I seamed it down the middle and with a few accessories on top, you can't tell that much.

The whole point is that it was a #guiltfreestyle upgrade to the living space for about $30.

NICE, RIGHT?
