DIY Faux Marble Desk


Hey Everyone!
I'm here with a DIY for you all. My almost 10 year old wants to redesign her room. For starters we decided to purging all of her baby stuff and giving a lot to charity.
She wanted to throw out this old IKEA desk her big sister handed down to her but I decided to cover it with some faux marble I had for a while in the back of my cabinet.  
So let's get to it.

Materials you need are:
Faux Marble Contact Paper.
I purchased mine from Amazon
Scissors
Old Credit Card  





As you can see the desk has seen it's better days but its still sturdy and smooth.
Please excuse the floor, we know how 9 years old are, lol..





First, I measured the desk width side and cut it using the grids that the contact paper had on its backside. After cutting it, apply the paper a little at a time making sure the you smooth it out the credit card and tuck the ends under the desk.   



To apply the second piece, try to make sure to get as close as possible to the first sheet.
If you really look, you can see the line but not bad for a first timer..



And we are done!
She really loves her desk and wants me to do more faux marbling.
 Below is a closer look.




Here's another picture.






An Another One!!

Inspired Faux Leather Square Obi Belt

Hey Everyone!!! Today, I'm coming at you today with an accessory an Obi belt to be more specific. I've been obsessed with Loewe's Wide Obi Belt since I've seen it on one of my favorite Youtubers.  As some of you all already know, I love to recreate designer fashion but give a twist to it. I love doing this at a fraction of the cost to tell the truth I actually did this for FREE.. Yes, FREE with faux black leather I purchased from Wal-Mart years ago. I love how the belt cinches in your waist, making your silhouette even more dramatic. Can you say Statement Piece?
