Marble Shelving DIY—Love this! (click through for tutorial)       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!

Marble Shelving DIY—Love this! (click through for tutorial)Supplies:
-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)
-white paint
-shelf brackets of choice (I used these and painted them gold)
-painter's tape (optional)

Marble Shelving DIY—Love this! (click through for tutorial) Use some painter's tape to determine the placement of where you want each shelf to sit.

Marble Shelving DIY—Love this! (click through for tutorial)  Paint the bottom and sides of each board (no need to paint the middle of the top) with several coats of paint. Use the Liquid Nails to attach the two tiles side by side to the top of each board.

(click through for tutorial)           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
