Love this door - is it faux painted? If so they did a great job. I would love to learn how to do this.

Thank you. This is decorative painting technique is called " faux-bois" which means false wood in French. It is used to create a wood grain look with paint. It has been used often throughout history. The decorative painter who did this is very talented and experienced but you can see examples and instructions about how to do this in decorative painting books. Good luck with this. You can do it to with some practice.
