Woodgrain Inspiration

I have always had this love for patterns in nature (see Honecomb inspiration).  My senior year of art, my theme was patterns in nature.  Looking back, I feel like I just skimmed the surface and it is something that I want to look more into and have that translate into some home decor and art.

After a little research, I learned this is called faux bois (french for false wood).  Faux bois is the artistic imitation of wood or wood grains in various media.

Here are a couple home decor pieces:

What do you think?  Have you ever heard of faux bois before?

Sidenote: My computer is so close to being fixed so I will finally be able to get some more pictures up of projects and some other stuff instead of just inspiration pieces.  I can't wait!  There is something about using your own computer that feels so comfortable and I miss it.
