Have you ever wanted a piece of furniture in your room to stand out more, but you didn’t want to buy all-new furniture?
That’s where I’m at right now, so I decided to find a way to revamp my dresser. After some searching on YouTube, I found this cool pour-on marbled effect, and I fell in love.
Any piece of wood furniture will work for this technique, so if you have something else in mind, give it a shot! Here’s how you do it.
First, you’ll need to choose your color pallete of paints. She uses 3 different pinks and a light gold, but anything will work for this.
Then, you’ll want to take apart your furniture piece. If it’s a dresser, for example, you’ll want to remove the drawers. YouTuber Jami Ray does this technique only on the drawers in her video, but anywhere is fine.
Then, it’s as simple as making sure the paint is runny (you can do this with water or any other mixing medium,) and drizzling the paint over the furniture.
Once it’s drizzled on, sway the piece in different directions so the paint moves around. Eventually it will swirl together, creating a unique marbling effect.
Watch the video below to see how it’s done. What are you going to use this technique on?
