See how easy it is to make my repurposed cabinet hardware and gray marbled tile tray! … and you won’t believe how inexpensive and easy it is to make!
As a home decor and DIY blogger thinking “out of the box” is something I love to do! Repurposing items and creating my own home decor are my big passions… I love to create one of a kind items for my home; the kinds of things that give my home personality and unique style.
Most of all I love sharing my DIY adventures with all of you! Today I’m sharing my step-by-step DIY tutorial for this gorgeous marbled gray tray so you can make one too.
You can use this DIY tray to store and display your jewelry, nail polish and perfume….

- 1 tile 12″ x 12 ” like this gray marbled style or this Carrara marble look – your choice of color and pattern. You can even use a rectangular sized tile.
- 2 of these 3 inch satin nickel cabinet handles
- Industrial Strength Adhesive – this is the BEST stuff I love it!
- Painter’s tape
- 4 felt pads
- Paint designed for tile
This is how I made my DIY marbled tray – it’s super quick and easy!
First use the painter’s tape to mark where you’d like the cabinet handles to sit on the tile in a centered position. These tape lines will act as a guide.
Attach each cabinet handle to the tile with adhesive following the adhesive instructions. Let adhesive dry.
Attach a felt pad to each bottom corner of the tile.
Paint the edge of the tile with a coat of gray paint to cover up the bare edge.
Note: Make sure you test that the handles are attached strongly because you won’t want them to pull off your tray and damage your floor or hurt your feet, if you will be carrying it around!
That’s it! Now enjoy your gorgeous new tray!
I love the gray and beige swirls and the marbled style of this tile. It looks and feels like real crosscut limestone! I’m a big gray lover so this really fits into my decor.
The satin nickel finish and shape of these cabinet handles are stunning too!
I’m using my tray on my vanity for storage and display – to hold my jewelry, perfume and a small crystal votive of flowers.
I love this tray so much I’m going to make a bigger version for our outdoor Restoration Hardware Knock Off Farmhouse table… for summer dining and entertaining!
I hope you like my DIY tray project and make one for yourself!
