Nature Imitated

Faux bois is an old paint technique where wood grain is imitated on a variety of surfaces, in these examples plaster and metal. I am crazy for Faux Bois! This lovely coat/ hat rack presents faux bois in metal. Imitated wood grain of the tree as the birds resting spot is perfect for spring.

Wood Grain on a plaster tree log is a playful twist on nature. This is the work by the awesome artists, somethings hiding in here on Etsy! You must check out there great shop, so original and playful. Two or three of these logs placed in a contemporary fireplace would look sensational.

That is a great coat and hat rack. One could leave it as is or even paint it to their liking. Very cool.
