Simple DIY: Faux Bois Treatment

082008-fauxbois.jpg We recently came across a video that showcases the easy, DIY steps, to creating a Faux Bios paint treatment. This is an easy solution to bring some color and personality into your space, while working within a budget (the shelves above are from IKEA). Click through the jump to see the process...Although the butterflies might be a bit cutsey-crafty, the LA Times Home section recently featured a great video showing how Bughouse Art & Design made over the previously pictured IKEA bookshelf. Many time we see faux bois used in subtle ways. This time it isn't so subtle and we think that's a good thing.
We can see this process used for everything from table tops to lawn furniture. It would give any space that extra "umph" to be all that it can be. Thanks to our friends at Craftzine for the heads up on such a great video.
