We’re in love with the marble trend that’s everywhere at the moment, but sometimes it just isn’t practical to go out and buy slabs of marble for all over your house. Of course there is always the marble contact paper solution, but for large surfaces, that just won’t hold up. To make our faux marble desk we used various painting techniques to create a pretty believable marble effect. Painting is a little harder to explain step by step but we take you through our methods and we’re sure you’ll be able to achieve a similar effect! Make sure to check out the video below for all the details...
