This video shows you how to make almost any product (except plastic or vinyl) look like any wood you like.
This is a great painting technique that almost anyone can do to add value to almost any room. The first time I had ever seen this it was used in both a steel elevator and steel railings on the stairway along side it. I was young then, maybe 16 or 17 so I asked a few questions about it and it turns out it had been done about 50 years earlier. This means it's very durable because I know that stairway took a beating over the years.
