Faux Marbled Accents

I’ve been a big fan of the “marbled” look since I worked at a paper store years ago. We sold gorgeous sheets of painted marbled paper. I used one to cover the inside of a glass lamp and years later lined my daughter’s dresser drawers with similar sheets.

Real marble is just gorgeous, of course, but the faux stuff can be beautiful and eye-catching too. I’ve rounded up a few examples (and even a few links to simple DIYs to get the look yourself!).

These marbled dishes are made with clay! They’d be perfect catch-alls for jewelry on a dresser or in the kitchen (I’m always taking off my rings while cooking).

I love that marbled contact paper exists – the possibilities are endless, but recovering table legs is such a fun idea. (Also would be great for simple circular vases or coasters.)

And back to my favorite marbled paper - a piece framed can make a great statement. This is gorgeous over a mantle, but I could see it as simple bathroom art too.

If you really want to go the DIY route, you can achieve a marbled look with nail polish. Here’s an awesome mug example, though the possibilities here are endless… anything white would make a great nail polish marbling surface.

Love this idea for covering a bar tray. Because it has an acrylic cover you could even change out the patterned paper depending on the season or event.

These clay faux marble drawer knobs are genius. Completely customizable too!

What do you think? Would you bring something faux marble into your space?
