15 Marble Contact Paper Hacks That Are Both Cheap And Chic

Diply 23 Jan 2018

I often say that a can of gold spray paint can immediately make the cheapest dollar store item look like a million bucks. If I were to pick a pattern that would do the same thing, it would 100% be marble.

It's trendy, it's chic, and while the real thing is pretty expensive, using marble contact paper definitely isn't. A roll of contact paper will likely set you back no more than $15, and you can use it on multiple projects. Are you ready to make your cheap stuff turn into Anthropologie-worthy home decor?

1. Cover an old clock, or make your own with a clock making kit.
