Actually, Henry, I don't think it was a "faux" thing in this case. I caught a part of this show having tea with my contractor buddy after church a few Sundays ago. I have a designer friend who does this to walls all the time, but on walls.o The floor thing I think utilzed epoxy over torn craft paper to resemble stone or such. No paint was used. Looked very interesting. I have emailed my interior designer friend to see if I can get more on what he does.
By the way, has the host of that show tried to grow back his musache?
