  • Homemade Wood Grain Dash

    You may have seen my other post but I'm going to make a new one to show off my project. I did these today with existing dash pieces. Any trim piece of any shape or size can be done since it's just painting.

    Here are the pieces I did today...

    Faux painted and cleared? Looks real nice. You going to share your process?
    I've been wondering how to do a wood look, even though I've done several paint treatments on walls it never dawned on me to do it to car parts!

      I respect the homemade stuff for sure, but I have to share something else I've come across...

      They do all sorts of patterns and faux finishes.. from carbon fiber to wood grain to dollar bills!
      DON'T PANIC.

              It's in a 2003 Lincoln LS. It's actually really simple. I laid down a reddish base coat (ended up using primer for it). Then I brushed on some brown leather paint and used the seran wrap method of getting the pattern. Clear coated it and it's a wrap.

                who makes brown leather paint color?

                could you please be more specific about what paint, like was it Krylon in a spray can, or did you use more expensive professional paint?

                  It was all cheap paint from True Value hardware stores. The primer was a spray can, generic brand. The brush on paint I can't remember the brand but it was not a sprayable paint.
