I haven’t really had a chance to examine her Home Depot products yet, but when Deliciously Determined offered an examination of faux bois, I clicked over to see the paintable faux bois wallpaper. I’m not crazy about the textural quality of the paper, but upon further investigation, I found something I do like:
For an 8 x 10 rug, $317 sounds pretty reasonable. At least that’s what my dining room keeps saying.
Home Depot is also offering Martha’s Decorative Painting Tool Kit, which includes the faux bois rocker tool.
I’m not a huge fan of faux finishes — I can’t forget those horrible infomercials from ten years ago — but when handled with suitable restraint, faux bois can be breathtaking.
And I mean that in the complimentary, non-Seinfeld kind of way.
