  • Painter’s tape

  • Formica sample

  • Razor blade

Repairing the chipped edge of a marble counter or table can be achieved fairly easily using supplies purchased from a building supply store. It is more important to keep chips from happening, however, so that further damage doesn't occur. Although marble is a sturdy surface, it can be damaged if an item is dropped on it at the wrong angle or if something is bumped against the edge at a certain angle. Repairing the chipped area quickly is necessary to keep the damage from increasing as time passes.


Step 1

Tape around the chipped area using painter's tape.

Step 2

Put painter's tape around the Formica sample, so that the two part epoxy doesn't stick to it.

Step 3

Tape the Formica sample up against the edge of the countertop using the painter's tape.


Step 4

Mix the two-part epoxy according to the manufacturer's directions. The exact method may vary from brand to brand.

Step 5

Fill the chipped area with the two-part epoxy, but do not overfill the area.


Step 6

Allow the epoxy to dry thoroughly, about 24 hours, before removing the Formica sample from the edge of the counter.

Step 7

Remove the Formica sample and use a razor blade to shave the excess epoxy off of the countertop. Be sure that the epoxy is level with the countertop.

Step 8

Remove all of the painter's tape from the marble surface.
