Wood Grain Finishes

Strong, elegant and sustainable—it’s no wonder wood is a timeless staple in home décor. No longer limited to just flooring or furnishings, versatile wood grain finishes now serve as beautiful statement pieces and can be added to your home in unexpected ways.

Update your home décor with nature-inspired wood grain products and finishes in surprising new places. From textured area rugs to elegant porcelain tile, bring a little piece of the outdoors in this spring.

Modern Art

Make your own masterpiece. This budget-friendly and easy recycled-wood wall art project makes a striking abstract installation.

Wood Grain Walls

Imitate the look of real wood with faux bois—French for “false wood”—painting techniques. Create your own wood-grain effect for less with the Martha Stewart Living Wood Grain Rocker paint tool. Use it on an accent wall for a quick DIY update.

Spa Bathroom

Wood is no longer a no-go in the bathroom—try the trend by combining porcelain wall tile in a glazed, wood grain finish with nature-inspired textures, creating a soothing retreat in your own home.


Make a statement with the Hampton Bay Oakdale 5-light Chandelier. Unite detailed embellishments of a traditional chandelier with a rugged, weathered finish for a fresh take on wood decor.


Go beyond bamboo with one of today’s green-friendly wood flooring options–Home Legend Brazilian Tigerwood Solid Hardwood Flooring. This rich, exotic flooring has an eco-friendly finish, resulting in a healthier home environment. Bonus: It’s resistant to dents, fading and stains.


Combining the elegance of a rustic wood grain glaze with the durability of porcelain, MARAZZI Porcelain Floor and Wall Tile adds that on-trend wood finish look to floors, walls and countertops. This tile is a great choice for indoor applications, such as spa bath walls, and can be used outdoors in a patio area, too.

  • 1. Prep the wall and paint a base coat. Mix the glaze by combining a latex or acrylic glazing liquid with your Martha Stewart Living paint color (make sure to follow the manufacturer’s instructions). Apply a thin layer of glaze, working in small sections.

  • 2. Create the wood grain effect by holding the wood grain rocker firmly and dragging it vertically through the glaze, gradually rolling the tool once from tip to end by the time you reach the bottom.

  • 3. For a more realistic look, drag the wood-graining rocker or the uneven edge of the graining comb alongside the previous panel.

  • 4. Enjoy your natural, elegant paint effect!


Choosing a piece that doesn’t usually showcase wood grain–like a light fixture–is an eye-catching way to tap into the trend. With smooth curves and a durable resin construction that is adaptable to almost any space, the Kenroy Home Derby Natural Wood Grain Table Lamp is never out of style.


Channel the elements with the Martha Stewart Living Faux Bois Paintable Wallpaper. Whether you’re updating your living room or refreshing a powder room, this bark-effect design will add modern comfort to any space. Paint it a complementary hue to match your décor, or leave it white for a fresh, clean look.


Create the illusion of a rich, wood grain texture with a Martha Stewart Living Layered Faux Bois Area Rug. Hand-tufted with 100% wool, this carefully crafted rug provides instant, effortless style—no installation required.
