When we first started mapping out the build for the Anthropologie-Inspired Cabinet, we knew we wanted to have two marble-looking handles that formed a diamond. However, the plan for how we were going to achieve that evolved as the rest of the project proved more challenging than anticipated.
The original plan was to build a resin mold and do a deep resin pour, making the marble pattern with different colors of resin. But we wanted a simpler way.
After some creative brainstorming, we came up what has to be the easiest way to achieve this look: print off a marble pattern on photo paper, adhere it to some wood and top it with a clear resin flood pour.
With only about 50% confidence that it would work, we gave it a go. And they turned out BEAUTIFULLY (if we may say so ourselves).
There really are only four steps to this process:
- Print off a marble pattern onto photo paper
- Cut it to size for your handles
- Adhere photo to handles using spray adhesive.
- Pour a flood coat of clear resin over it.
For the full instructions, including how we cut the handles, head on over to our Instructable on this project: Anthropologie-Inspired Cabinet From a Worn Out Display Shelf.
