Malachite...Hot or Not?

OK..I regularly read a couple of east coast blogs {listed under my fav blogs section} and there is a ton of Chitter Chat about Malachite.   I seriously just can't stop thinking about it..I'm concocting DIY ideas.  I'm pretty close to running down to the thrift store and DIY'ing some lamps for my master bedroom.   The look is an acquired taste and it definitely would not fit into some of my more playfully inspired rooms.  It's serious, dramatic and kinda masculine and that's just what i want for the master bedroom.  So here is an image of actual malachite...
Its a crystal...but this design is just yummy.   And duplicating the circular image on art or furniture is pretty simple...check out these ideas below.  I defiantly want to try this lamp idea.

And here is a very creative faux malachite table.  Yumm

Thoughts people?  For some reason I'm just so drawn to it, but then again I wore MC Hammer pants every day in 4th grade.  Knowing this fact, I should often question my judgement!  So I'd love to hear from you peeps...is it Hot or Not!?

  2. I like the lamp a lot, but I'm not necessarily a huge fan of the desk! Just personal preference though! :)
