Hey guys! I know I usually showcase furniture/room changes on Transformation Tuesdays. Today, I’m sharing the most simple DIY transformation known to man. Honestly, I can’t even call it a DIY because there’s only one step and your 3 year old could do this. So people, if crafts aren’t your thang, they are now with this simple transformation.

Have you ever seen one of those nice, marble cheese boards? Um, have you seen how much they cost? Let me tell you.

This small marble cheese board is from Pottery Barn and costs $49.

This one from Willams- Sonoma costs $80.

Now, I don’t know about you but I’m not one to spend $49 or $80 on a cheese board unless it’s on your wedding registry or something. Want to know how you can make your own for about $5-6? Go to the hardware store and find a marble tile. They are usually in the back of the store in boxes. It will most likely measure 12×12. My tile cost around $2-$3.

There were a few different colors and I chose the brightest white. Make sure you clean it well with some mild soap because it will be dusty.

Place the clear bumper feet on all four corners on the backside. The tile is heavy so be careful handling it. Now, flip it over and see how your floor tile has transformed into a serving board! haha #tooeasy #itoldyou

On Valentines Day, our sweet husbands cooked and arranged for us have a cocktail hour so we could enjoy the quiet afternoon while they prepared dinner. Sara’s husband, Young, arranged the beautiful appetizers on the marble board!

You could even use the marble board to display dessert like this chocolate quinoa banana bread. Just take this recipe and add in 2 bananas when you blend the wet ingredients. It’s a much healthier version of banana bread. 

Now, go and make the easiest DIY craft ever! Hope you’re staying warm!
