If you haven’t yet discovered the brilliance of Glitter Guide, shame on you.
Earlier this week, they instagrammed this picture. What caught my eye was the gorgeous gold-leafed, agate-like tray thingy.
I obviously had to have it. Here’s what I did to get the look!
You will need:
One 12 x 12 inch marble floor tile – Lowe’s ($5!)
1. On a concrete or asphalt surface, hold the chisel vertical to the tile. Bring the hammer down onto the chisel until the tile breaks. Continue to work around the edges of the tile until you get it down to a shape and size you like. This might take some practice. The tile won’t always break exactly where you want but that’s okay. We aren’t going for perfection.
2. Add some adhesive felt pads to the underside to prevent scratching.
3. Paint edge in gold or silver. The gold paint was left over from a previous project of mine.
I really, really love the finished product. Chic, elegant, and modern.
