Here's the beginning of a project i just finished to make this fireplace mantle look like real wood a lot of people don't know what I do for a living when I say I'm a faux finish painter. The first picture is what i started with the second is after i did the wood graining and the last is the finished product, I'm happy with how it turned out if I didn't do it myself I doubt I would know it wasn't real wood! #fauxfinish #woodgraining #faux
Very pleased with this finish. When talented designer Jason Mitchell of J Ansel Designs saw this sample finish of mine, he told me he wanted to do it on an accent wall for an expectant newborn's room. At first, I scratched my head and thought..."I don't see that...but this should be interesting.". As soon as I saw the art piece (behind me in the first pic) that will be hung in the room, the houndstooth and cognac fabrics he will be using throughout, the clear acrylic baby crib that will sit in front of the wall (you can see in one of the photos)....I knew exactly why he selected this finish. And that's also when I knew exactly where I wanted to go with the finish. When I was almost finished with the wall, Jason walked in and fell to his knees. Lol. I looked at him, smiled and knew this was a big score. In person, it is even more phenomenal. The completed full design is still in progress. I can't wait for completion...I'll be excited to show you the finished room. Stay tuned! Wall Talk Decorative Finishes.... Www.mywallztalk.com.

Appearing in a Google advert (as a decorator) , avoiding speeding criminals in car chases who mount the pavement and buying the longest brush in London are all part of preparation for wood graining in Kings Cross ... that starts tomorrow..
