DIY marble slab

For a new and richer texture for your plain wooden slab, pour epoxy on the top to simulate a marble texture. Add some gray accent paint, spread it roughly with a paintbrush, gently blow the surface with a heat gun, then smudge and spread the gray paint with your hand, let it dry completely before stacking and displaying your decorative pieces on top.

DIY marble low table

For a new and faux high-end low table, all you need is a large pot and a tabletop. Place the tabletop above the pot, then paint the surface white, shake a black spray paint, and point far from the tabletop, it will create rough streaks and random splatter on the table which mimics a marble look.
