Against the Grain
Jun 16, 2011
In case your knowledge of French consists of that one semester you slept through in college like me, here is a refresher. Faux bois, pronounced "foe bwah" and definitely not "fox boys" is a term that means "fake wood." You may be asking yourself what the heck that has to do with anything. Obviously Kari's wood table here is anything but fake, and besides,she painted over the wood in the end anyway.
But look closely! No, CLOSER. Do you see the faux bois grain in yellow on the top? Isn't that great? She accomplished this with her faux bois rocker tool, which I want to try because it looks so easy and yet delivers really groovy results. (ha, pun!) See more from Kari at Encore Decor.
