Pfooey on Faux 

When you see me on a soapbox railing against faux paint finishes for walls and chairs and tables (let alone crackle which has crept back) you know I've been watching too much interior design TV.

I thought we left some of that creepy stuff behind in the 60's but apparently it has been lying dormant and we now have a resurgent epidemic.

The only faux technique I've ever admired was some of the 18th/19th century imitation flame grain created on early American furniture.

Best faux finish I've spotted to date. The Mormon Tabernacle in Salt Lake City. It belongs, it works and it is well done.
