Malachite painting from the one and only Tony Duquette
This year, I was thrilled to work with Sherwin-Williams again and I thought it would be a good opportunity to try another faux painting technique. My color is green this year, so of course there was only one option: malachite.

Lamps from 1st Dibs
Console from 1st Dibs
These were some of the images I referenced before starting my project (and I'll be honest - it was a little intimidating to tackle this one, but it ended up being a breeze!). I decided to do a bit of a bluer shade, like the colors in this Celerie Kemble chair, but just a tad more green.
Before I started, I also looked at the techniques other DIYers have tried. Here's a little round up of the posts that were super helpful to me:
Malachite boxes via The Aestate (a seriously awesome blog)
Inspired by The Aestate's tutorial, a cute tray via Burlap and Lace
Also this one, via Mimosa Lane
Malachite mats via Everything LEB
Piano bench via A Thousand Laughing Starfish
Faux malachite lamps via Gorgeous Shiny Things
Faux Malachite walls via Apartment Therapy
Faux malachite knobs via Teal and Lime
This scan below from a vintage book of faux painting techniques was an interesting read. I ended up doing something very similar for my project.
