Ever wonder how the gals on Instagram achieve a beautiful flat lay backdrop of marble on their images? I always wished I could achieve this look, but didn't know the easiest and most affordable way until I realized: home improvement stores carry slabs of marble (or similar-to-marble) flooring! You don't need to buy a marble table worth hundreds of dollars in order to have beautiful flat lays. Today, I'm showing you how to achieve the marble flat lay look in just $10. Don't believe me? Here's my receipt from my local Lowe's Hardware:

To make your own kickass flat lay, head to your local hardware store and hit the "Flooring" aisle. You won't regret it!
