The gorgeous green swirls of malachite seem like they would be hard to replicate, but Jenny from Little Green Notebook made it work using just a little paint and imagination — with impressive results! Jump below to see the finished project...

Using two fan brushes and a few different colors of paint, Jenny freehanded a pattern that emulates the look of real malachite. While she admits that she's not "fooling" anybody with her handiwork, the resulting design is a pretty, colorful (and currently very trendy) abstract surface to punch up her IKEA tables.
