Faux Carrera Marble

Last Updated on January 8, 2016 by Kristi Linauer

It’s not often that I’m impressed with faux painting techniques, but when I saw this faux Carrera marble by Danika of Gorgeous Shiny Things, I had to do a double take, because it look so real! She’s even kind enough to share her technique in a “how to” video.


See more pictures and a fantastic tutorial video at Gorgeous Shiny Things. (And you won’t want to miss the “before” pictures of her countertop and backsplash!!)

    Wow it is nice – maybe I will do a backsplash with it – is it heavy and is it expensive?  By the way I sort of found a solution to my wood problem.  I still wish you guys lived a little (like about a thousand miles) closer for more reasons than one;0)
