Hi-- new to the list and new to homeownership. We bought a 1927 Craftsman 2/1 and discovered that the built-ins and baseboards in LR and DR are not stained, but painted to look like wood grain using a 19th century graining technique. We'd love to re-paint them and retain the original character, but don't know where to start or how to learn the technique. Any ideas for either craftsman specialists, or how to do it ourselves would be much appreciated!
