Marble Dining Table

A few months ago, I bought a gorgeous solid wood banquette on a Facebook yard sale page for $100, then lucked out and found an adorable round dining table (see the before below) on Craigslist that fit my space perfectly. I painted the banquette a bright white, made some cushions, then, as with all DIY projects, lost my steam. So the poor mismatched table sat in my dining room for months while I tried to figure out what to do with it.

Paying homage to the sweeping lines of midcentury furnishings, our table is a study in simplicity. Defined by its balanced proportions and arching, sculptural curves, our interpretation pairs a cast metal pedestal base with a bullnose marble top.

Now for the fun stuff. Using an inspiration image of Carrara marble as a guide, I roughly drew out the veining lines with a medium paint brush, then immediately sponged over them with the dry side of my sponge, blurring the veins (see below). I then sponged completely over the entire table with white paint. I repeated this process about three times to create a gorgeous base layer. I think this is what gave my final product that deep “underwater” look.

I let the paint dry for about 30 minutes, then poured a thick coat (about 3/4 of a bottle) of Parks Super Glaze in the center of the table. I then used a plastic spreader to distribute the glaze from the middle to the edges, making sure I completely coated the edges with glaze (not an easy feat on a round table). I covered the legs of the table with a drop cloth to catch any glaze drips. That stuff is super sticky.

I was a little weary at first, but my journey into the world of faux marbling has completely changed my mind about faux finishes. They can be done and done right! All you need is a full day, a little patience and marble surfaces can be yours at a fraction of the cost. This is seriously THE best DIY project I’ve ever done. And it looks even better in person!

Once I was happy with the base layer, I created smaller, more defined veins using a thin paintbrush. Following the video instructions, I painted, sponged, then dry-brushed each vein. Then, no joke, I repeated this process about four times, repainting, sponging and dry-brushing each vein until I was happy with the results. There was no need to let the paint dry between layers — the final result looks more organic if each new layer is added to a slightly-tacky underlayer. The image below is what the table looked like after the second layer of veining (it was a tad too dark and involved for my liking). For an authentic look, make sure the veins wrap around the edges of the table.

You definitely want to do this project inside, over a drop cloth. Dust and bugs are not friends to layers of paint and super thick acrylic glaze. So, unless you want to spend your evening picking gnats out of your table, this project is best executed indoors.
