I recently bought some faux bois contact paper at The Family Dollar store and originally intended to use it on our white IKEA bookcase. It was going to wrap around just the shelves, basically the horizontal parts. All the vertical parts would stay white. But I wasn’t convinced it would look, just wasn’t seeing the vision, if you know what I mean. Plus it might be way too busy for the ton of stuff on those shelves already.
The roll has been lying there for a few weeks now just begging to be used. But nothing was coming to mind. And before I committed to doing whatever with the paper to use it up, I decided to do a little research and find some inspiration. I went a little nuts and most of this stuff doesn’t really apply to my contact paper. But there were so many cool faux bois projects out there, that I ended up doing this round-up post to share with you.
What a gorgeous organizer storage box. Makes you want to get organized, doesn’t it? Also doubles as a gift box. Although, I think it’s too pretty to give away.
Got a ho-hum white vinyl shade in need of sprucing up? How about adding an organic faux bois pattern to them by making your own vinyl shade decal.
Cardboard tube wall storage, what a great storage solution for a small entry or even in the kitchen or bedroom.
Give a boring tray a faux bois tray makeover.
Make your own DIY Faux Bois Wood grain Rug, it’s really easier than you think.
I totally heart this woodgrain glitter lampshade. I looks amazing!
Great idea creating a faux bois pattern on these vases. It’s timeless so you can use them year round.
This pretty nightstand looks like it came like that from the factory. It took a couple of tries, but it went from blah to faux bois fabulous.
Ok, this floor is to die for! Not sure if I would have the patience to paint a woodgrain floor on a large area. But in a small space, I would totally go for it.
Four plain square mirrors were turned into Faux Bois Mirrors with a little imagination.
Leave it to Martha to carve out an incredibly elaborate faux bois pumpkin. Just beautiful.
Isn’t this just the cutest diy gift wrapping? Fall leaves and all…

What a fun and unique fall centerpiece, the studs add a little extra bling.
Got an empty jar laying around? Turn it into a cute little wood grain vase with some contact paper.
What a darling little woodgrain candle. So simple yet stunning.
Last but not least, a somewhat easier pumpkin project; black and white painted pumpkin. Very glam, love the owl too.
Still no closer to figuring out what I’m going to make. So many ideas, so little time. At least I got a big roll of contact paper.
