West Elm Agate Box Knock-Off

I found some beautiful, marbled looking paper online and bought a few sheets.
 It was relatively inexpensive...$1.25 for a 12x12 sheet.

The first project I had in mind for it was to recover this old, wooden box I picked up at the thrift store for a couple bucks.

It was a fairly easy, decoupage project that took about a half hour to do.  I think it turned out pretty  great for only $3 and a few minutes of my time.

I noticed that West Elm has a similar looking agate box on their site for $49-$79.

I had a few pieces of paper still left over, so I used them to cover some boring old books for a chic, updated look.

I really like the texture and pop of color the paper adds to the books.  What I love more is that it only cost me a couple of dollars for the update.

If you love marble/agate accents, but can commit to the price, why not consider using some of this beautiful paper?
