Marble and Granite for Furniture Projects

A lot of people think "Kitchens and baths" when they think of granite and marble tops, but did you know that a stone top can be added to just about any piece of furniture? Upcycled and DIY furniture is hugely popular right now, and amazing things can happen when you add custom fabricated stone to your projects.  Your local stone fabricator (Hey! That's us!) usually has a remnant or "bone yard" with small pieces of slab perfect for projects like this. We've done some before and have several in the works right now, which is what got me thinking about this post.  

This is an adorable side table that we put a marble top on for a customer's DIY project, and it turned out great.

Here are a few other ideas to get your creative juices flowing.  We have several remnants in our yard right now and we would love to help you pick the perfect piece for your next furniture restoration project.  I will admit that seeing these photos while researching for this post started my gears turning in a big way!
