Water rings and heat marks can destroy the looks of an otherwise beautiful piece of furniture. But, if you have developed a water ring on your wooden table, nightstand, or similar furniture piece, don’t chuck it out just yet.

Marble is a beautiful natural stone that adds a luxurious feel and a high-end look to any home. It lends a classic elegance that never goes out of style. However, marble is also one of the more expensive materials available, and you may believe that having anything made from real marble is beyond your means. Fortunately, I know an easy way to make a marble accent table, and it won’t cost you an arm and a leg to do it.

Thank goodness he didn’t want anything too extravagant! He was more than pleased with this easy DIY modern platform bed.
