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:
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.
