Faux finishing matches wood surfaces
to any type of wood.
This credenza, made of plywood
and paint-grade lumber, was to be painted a
solid color to match the wallpaper .
The interior decorator changed his mind
and decided that the credenza should be
stained to match the desk.
The wood was filled with knot holes and
the wood grain did not match.
Different wood pieces take the stain differently.
To insure uniformity in the stain,
the credenza was faux wood grained.
The surface of the wood was filled with spot filler.
Several undercoats of different colors were applied
to provide the depth necessary to match the wood desk.
The credenza was then wood grained to match
the desk. The grain was hand drawn.
