Creating unique pieces of furniture for your home just brings so much joy, just the thought that you MADE something for your home leaves you with such a great feeling. One day while I was thrifting, I found a 12″ marble round that looked like it was used for a lazy Susan since the marble piece had a bit of wood to the bottom that I just couldn’t pry apart from the marble. When I was brainstorming a small fluted table to use as a plant stand or a pedestal for decor, I remembered the perfect little piece of marble I thrifted which had me SO excited for this DIY marble table. You could easily modify this table to create a diy marble coffee table by grabbing a larger piece of scrap marble from your local stone yard & creating two pillars to sit the marble on for a luxe DIY coffee table on a budget!
- 12″ marble round
- 10″ Concrete Tube Form
- Miter Saw
- Compact mouse sander
- 120 grit sandpaper for sander
- Titebond multi-purpose glue
- 12 – 11/16 x 8′ half-round pieces
- Flat white spray paint if not painting the wood afterward
- Box cutter
Optional to add gold ring under marble
Directions for DIY Marble Table
- If adding the optional gold ring, paint the wood round edges with the gold leaf paint & then attach it to the center of the marble piece with the Titebond glue. Leave the marble ontop while drying to have the weight on the wood
- Cut your tube form in half to 2 feet with a box cutter, spray paint form if not painting the table afterward & then glue the clean side to the marble piece bottom
- Cut your half-round pieces into 2′ pieces with a miter saw, each piece will yield 4 pieces. Double-check end pieces since some of mine were a bit longer than 8′
- Get to gluing your half rounds to the concrete tube form, wood is never perfectly straight or flush so leave a little breathing room between half rounds (this is why we painted the form)
- Once finished adding all 47 of your half rounds, sand the bottom for ragged edges & possibly ragged pieces of the form
- If desired, paint the fluted bottom
