So gorgeous! Do you know what was done to the paneling? We have a paneled family room the future of which we are debating vigorously. I want to keep the paneling, especially if we could transform it this way. Was it refinished, replaced, or something else?

Custom Furniture Works put a dark stain on the old paneling and then created the graining with their fingers when it was still wet. I am sure there were some other steps, though that is the concept.

Thanks, Ted! We will have to look into that. We're loving our new home. Thanks again for all your help in getting us into it.

It was a four step process to refinish the paneling (which was quite sun faded). A black stain was applied first & then the grain patterns were wiped away by hand(this is called finger glazing) then a lighter stain was applied over it & finally a clear coat. I wanted the wood grain to look deeper & more like an exotic wood like rosewood or Macassar ebony.
