Marble Shelving DIY

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:
– (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 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

  • I absolutely love this! I think I will try something similar to this for my own bathroom, thanks!

    Julia –

  • I just love your DIY projects! These marble shelves are definitely on my to do list – I don’t have tools to cut, etc. but this is easy enough for someone like me to do on my patio! Thanks for sharing and I’m looking forward to your new DIY posts!

  • I love this project and all you do at SpG!! But isn’t it rather out of touch with the average person to say that $275+ for two shelves is affordable? That last sentence really killed me because I love love love this project but it’s just not affordable for me or most people I know!

  • Hi Allie, I think the price you see at the site for the marble tiles is for a pack of 10, not for each one, so you would only need 1 pack ($55). If I’m not mistaken, you can also buy each tile for $11 as a sample. I hope this helps!

  • My Goodness! How expensive were the shelves you wanted, that you thought paying $55 per tile was a cheaper alternative?!

  • These look so good! In my situation the natural wood would also look pretty awesome. Is that a big hunk of Himalayan salt or Rose quartz? Have you ever gone to a granite/surfaces/marble supplier where they cut the slabs on site to ask if they have any trim cuts or scraps? Sometimes they give those out for super cheap or free. Might not be your exact size but a slight lip on this shelf would be ok too.

  • LIKE!! If I would be doing this I would leave the wood as wood without painting it white. this would give some more warmth to it. but really lovely!

  • Wow these look absolutely amazing and seem so easy to make as well! Love them

  • Wow! This is beautiful and looks so easy to do with the instructions you shared. Thank you so much, looks I have a new project on the horizon.

  • It looks really expensive and I can`t believe that it is that easy to make them on your own!
    Great tutorial 🙂

  • I completely agree with you Allie. SpG is a great brand, and a wonderful blog, but the pricing for their “affordable DIY” projects is getting ridiculous.

  • Yep, Aida is correct! The linked lot is for 10 tiles so you could make 5 shelves with it or find other tiles you like locally that will let you buy a smaller quantity. My shelves were about $40 per shelf with the linked products 🙂

  • Oh, this absolutely will look fabulous on a white/gold living room, just perfect 🙂

  • I love this !! Might invest in this marble shelf and stick it in the bathroom :p xx

  • These are gorgeous. Marble makes things look so fancy. For anyone complaining about the price though(and I’m not arguing because “expensive” is a very subjective term), I think a similar look could be achieved using marble paper for a less expensive option. Just a thought!

  • This is great news! I looked at the listing for the tiles before and I didn’t see anything about it being a multi-pack so maybe you can see how I got so disappointed in the price – thanks for the updated info! This does indeed make this a more affordable way to incorporate real marble into cute storage. (Thanks Laura and Aida for the clarification!)

  • This looks good, but may I suggest an upgrade? There is no reason to put a wooden piece under the marble (which, in my opinion, leaves a gap that is unsightly). The brackets can be mounted on the wall, and then the marble can be attached using silicon. This gives a much cleaner look.
