Wood Graining on Doors

Wood graining or faux wood painting is a form of specialist decoration that emulates the natural characteristics of wood. In the past it was used to replicate exotic, rare or expensive woods, providing a cost-effective way to add consistency and grandeur to an interior.

Nowadays, the art of wood graining is used in much the same way, allowing cheaper woods to be upgraded or previously painted surfaces to be disguised. To create a realistic and convincing finish, it’s essential to pay close attention to the movement of the grain and the intricacies of individual woods. In the pictures above Lee painted new pine doors to look like aged oak (and match the breakfast table), a painted fire door to look like pine (and match the other house doors), and mdf to look like oak and burr walnut.
