One of my favorite patterns of all time is woodgrain. Could be because I have a forestry degree, but it could also be that I love a pattern that seems to fit into any type of decor. Woodgrain, also known as faux bois, is definitely one of those patterns! There are so many ways to add woodgrain into your home decor. You can use contact paper, paint . . . there’s even a tool you can use to make the pattern. This DIY faux bois dresser uses that very tool, so check that project out to find out how it was done.
