Of all the faux finishes, Wood Graining is the most magical. These Wood Grain Pocket Doors between a Dining Room and Living Room were originally painted white. Our first step was to base coat them in metallic gold to lend a warm glow throughout the finish. Then, seemingly out of nowhere, the faux –Mahogany wood grain appeared with the subsequent transparent paint glazes


Faux Finishes

Faux Wood Grain, also called Faux Bois, is a worldly decorative arts technique that appears in classic, traditional, and cutting edge contemporary interiors. The Dining Room where these doors reside showcases two other faux finish applications of ours; deeply glazed Burgundy Walls and Faux Marble Painted Columns.

Using artistic paint alchemy, Painted White Pine doors transformed into Mahogany. See more examples of Faux Wood Graining at: https://arteriors.net/gallery/trompe-loeil-panels-and-sky-mural/?portfolioID=20
