Marble Tray DIY

Arrow Thin Left Icon Arrow Thin Right Icon

Today I'm talking DIY marble trays! Awhile back my neighbor was redoing his bathroom and had a bunch of leftover marble tiles he was throwing away. I snagged a couple and naturally decided to upcycle them into trays. I'll get to the delicious pizza how-to, but for now, let's DIY marble tiles.

Materials:
  • Marble tile
  • Hardware 
    • I got mine from Home Depot. Brass hardware can be pricey, so I sprayed mine in gold lacquer. I  created this nifty paint stand (foam + kabob sticks) for the hardware so that I could ensure even paint coverage on the underside of the pull. 
  • Ruler
  • Whiteboard marker
  • E6000 adhesive  
  • Felt bumpers
DIY Details:
  • Spray your hardware. 
  • Use your ruler and whiteboard marker to measure and mark where to place the hardware. I decided to place my hardware .5" from each side edge and 1" from the top and bottom edges.  
  • Apply the adhesive to the feet of the pull and place on the tray. 
  • Dry. Allow for adequate dry time. 
  • Apply felt bumpers to the back of the tray. 
  • Use to mis en place or to style your decor accessories. I used it for both!
I don't know about you guys, but I am a pizza fanatic. I could literally eat pizza, with ranch obviously, for every meal. Thank god I don't, otherwise I would weigh 1,000 pounds.  I included my quick and easy pizza recipe since I'm sure that all you have been thinking about since you started reading this post is the pizza pictured above. :)

Recipe:
  • Tandori bread
  • Mozzarella
  • Basil
  • Tomato
  • Olive oil
  • McCormick's Mediterranean spiced sea salt
  1. Preheat the oven to 275 degrees. 
  2. Mix olive oil and McCormick's Mediterranean spiced sea salt in a small bowl. 
  3. Cut mozzarella and tomato slices. 
  4. Use a basting brush to apply the olive oil mixture to the tandori bread slices. 
  5. Add the mozzarella and tomato slices to the tandori. 
  6. Cook for roughly 10-15 minutes (or until the mozzarella has melted). 
  • I put the basil on about 3-4 minutes before the pizza is done.
  • Nom dot com. It's time to eat. Cheers! 


Here is how I styled some of my bedroom accessories!
