So in order to incorporate some of this gorgeous mineral into my house, I created my own faux malachite tray!
I bought a square tray from Target on clearance for $5 (the same one I have on my coffee table) and spray primed it. I then collected a few paint brushes, dark green paint, lime green paint, and black paint, as well as a piece of cardboard. I followed THIS tutorial that I found on The Aestate! I didn’t include step by steps in this post, so click on over and follow that tutorial if you’re interested.
The good thing about this is that it’s supposed to look like natural striations in the rock, so if you mess up, it’s easy to either cover up or play off like it never happened.
And here is the finished product!
She rests on my TV stand with a few books and a Nate Berkus urchin.
