You may or may not have noticed that marble is very “in” at the moment and I’m loving it! I noticed it gaining popularity a few years ago when white kitchens became all the rage showing up as countertops and backsplashes, but now it’s in everything from jewelry to flower pots. Just check out some of the stunning ways marble is being used:

Although beautiful, marble isn’t cheap. As an alternative, I like to use adhesive paper which is in abundance at Dollarama. So for less than a dollar, you can rock this trend all year!

I bought some black and white marble paper along with this green color to cover an unused picture frame I had in storage and a wooden box that I picked up from the dollar store.

The lines on the back of the adhesive paper make it very easy to measure and cut. Once you have the size you need, you simply peel the backing off and apply it to your surface.

If you were around for the Sprite renovation, you’d remember that I used this carrara marble paper to cover both the countertops and dining table in the camper.

I’ve even seen other bloggers use it in their kitchen as a temporary fix for ugly countertops!

There are a lot of trends I tend to avoid simply because I can’t see them lasting longer than a few years, but I’ll be very surprised if this one goes anywhere soon!
