Love the look of marble?
If you’ve had your eyes set on some gorgeous marble pieces to add around your home but can’t justify the cost, I’m sharing a straightforward home decor DIY you can do in just minutes to get the marble look for a whole lot less.
I’m sure you’ve seen before how people epoxy countertops and other surfaces to look just like marble, but if you didn’t already know, there’s an even easier way to get the marble look so many people love!
Thanks to the genius invention of this Krylon Marbelizing Spray paint, you can transform so many different decor pieces in your home to mimic real marble! Just keep in mind it’s meant for indoor items only so you can’t go spray painting your outdoor patio when you become obsessed with this look! 😉
I love that you can customize the color & the amount of marbelization, too! 😍
Whether you love a marble with tons of dark veining or just a subtle look, this marble spray paint gives you endless opportunities! Plus, it even comes in a few different colors, so you can get exactly the marble design you’re looking to achieve!
Although I’m going to share how I transformed my white planters, you can also use this on just about anything, from jewelry trays to planters, as a couple of ideas. In fact, House Beautiful even shared how they did a marble countertop (shown above) — Impressive!
Here are some helpful tips for using marbelizing spray paint:
- You’ll need a screwdriver. When I start a project, I get a little impatient and jump in with both feet. When opening this can of spray paint, I realized I needed a screwdriver to do so! First, I used the closest one at arm’s reach which was way too small and I cracked the lid. Luckily, grabbing a full-sized screwdriver from the basement still got the job done.
- Make sure your surface is clean. I did experience a little bubbling on one of my planters so just make sure you clean your surfaces well before spraying your surface.
- Don’t use plastic items that experience high traffic. Since plastic isn’t absorbent, you’ll want to pick pieces that won’t be touched often or rubbed. Of course, you could try sealing them, but since my planters just sit on the shelf I opted not to do this.
- Test some out on a scrap surface first. I wasn’t sure how this was going to turn out so I found it best to test a few strokes of the spray paint on my box beforehand.
Now let’s do this!

I’m so impressed with how easy it is to use this marble spray paint!
It dried in less than 5 minutes and actually resembles marble – I couldn’t believe it! My planter went from basic to a modern masterpiece in less than 5 minutes!
I did run into some little imperfections though…
After my planters dried I did notice some bubbling so I’m assuming I didn’t clean my planter off very well or this is just the price to pay for saving so much cash on real marble. Either way, from a foot away you can’t even tell and I’m pretty happy with the results!
Check out what some others made using this Marbelizing Spray Paint:
“I built a benchtop out of pinewood, sanded, primed, and clear coated, then sprayed this over the clear before drying to simulate a marble countertop. Although the clear coat didn’t come out smooth the finish looked great with this product’s effect. After sanding, adding another clear coat, re-sanding, and buffing to smooth out the finish, I’m pretty happy with the final results!” – TJ
“This gave me the exact look I was hoping for! I used it to repaint lamps and also a tabletop that was long overdue. I think it was very easy to use too!” – Ann
