How To Completely Change Your Photography Game With A DIY $5 Faux Marble Backdrop

Ever wonder how everyone seems to have a marble countertop for their photos on social media? I’ll let you in on a secret…most are faking it. *gasp* 

And guess what? I don’t have a marble countertop either, but I do love the look of it. Clean and crisp. It’s literally the perfect back drop for so many different types of photos. BUT, alas, I couldn’t go around changing my countertops, just for photos. I know, I know, crazy right?  

Marble backgrounds just have that clean look that really helps photos pop. It has to be one of my absolute favorite backgrounds. I have a marble tile (which you can see is in the picture above, and here’s the recipe for that awesome pasta ) that I bought from Home Depot, but it is rather heavy and can be limiting in size, so I wanted to find something that was bigger and lighter that I could use. Enter this amazing contact paper from Walmart I found for $5 and some change!! I glued it onto some foam board and voila!! I now have this giant board I can take pictures on for the blog or social media or whatever my heart desires!

Yes, you can buy a tray from Target, or Homegoods, and also get the tile, but it just always ends up being limiting when it comes to pictures because it’s hard to fit everything you need to photograph on that tiny tray. I was at Walmart, and saw this contact paper and I knew it was basically the answer to my problems!

Look how big that piece is and oh, so light! Perfect for picture taking my friends! Helps brighten up any photo you’re trying to take! 

Here are a couple of other examples of how I use this faux marble background!

So if you’re looking to up your game when it comes to taking product shots, or improving your flat lays, you cannot go wrong with making this simple DIY faux marble background! Especially since it’s sooooo cheap!! Get your butt to Walmart STAT!! 

Pin it for future reference!!
