DIY West Elm Dupe

3 Materials
20 Minutes

So I saw this West Elm Marble Planter and I knew I could recreate it at a fraction of the cost.

First find a good square box to start with.

Luckily, the one I got was already white like I wanted it to be, if yours is another color you can go ahead and paint it white first (or use it in the color it comes)

Next pick which color you want the marble look to be. For me, I got this acrylic color that looks grey

Paint on some random patches. You can choose to add more or less according to your liking.

Now you'll smudge and wipe the access paint off creating that beautiful marble pattern.

Grab two wooden dowels and some gold paint.

Here is what they look like painted

Mark the dowel leaving an inch for the bottom stand. If you leave the mark too low it could end up too tall

Cut four equal dowels for each side and touch up any scratched paint if needed

Now glue the dowels on each side leaving an inch at the bottom for the planter leg.

And your done! With an west elm dupe at a fraction of the cost!
