Faux Graining

You need to go to a real paint store for the materials and instructions on how to do this. The nice part is that if the results do not suit you, paint over it and try again. The technique is not hard, and the tools are simple. Basically you start with a basecoat of the dominant shade, and tool on the "figure" or "grain". This is a good example of why you should frequent Mom and Pops instead of the big boxes.
