DIY Mini Copper & Marble Shelves

DIY Marble Shelf @themerrythought Some days I go to Lowe’s or Home Depot just to spend an hour looking through the aisles hoping that some new project will just pop out at me. Last week I was wandering through the plumbing/pipes aisle and I saw these copper plated tubing hooks and this mini shelf idea popped in my head. I decided to try it out with some dark marble and I think they make the perfect addition to my room. They’d be a great option to organize some beauty supplies in your bathroom as well!

At under $2 each and just a few minutes to put together, they’re the best kind of DIY!
DIY Marble Shelf @themerrythought What you need:
-3×8″ Marble
-Copper plated tubing hook
-Heavy duty glue
-*Optional: leather strip

How to make it:
Use a generous amount of glue along the flat bottom part of the copper and lay your marble on top. You may want to glue a strip of leather (or any sturdy material – I just had extra leather nearby) across both copper ends to give it extra support. Let it dry overnight and then hang them up!

  1. Oh, you’re a genius! I love these, and have all the bits and bobs I need to make them. Some slates fell off my roof recently, and they’re lovely, so I’ll use those in place of marble. Our house is around 160 years old, and needed a huge amount of work. We’ve done the big stuff, but there isn’t much money left for pretty things, so I’m really grateful for your website. Thanks and hugs to you!

    1. Thank you, Linda! I think a piece of glass could work if it was about the same size as the marble, but you would be able to see the glue through the glass.

  2. I’m marble obsessed, so anything made out of it I love! The fact that they are mini is even cuter! Such a perfect idea for small space storage like bathrooms. I recently made a marble tray using a marble tile and some kitchen knobs as handles!
