Faux polished onyx-bookshelves

The floors had more of a golden ochre color. The walls and trim are all an off-white, probably Ben Moore's Linen White. We went with a terra-cotte glaze for the faux polished stone.
This is a rendering of faux onyx done on
 the back of some bookshelves.

The glazing was topped off with a gloss varnish which does yield the effect of polished stone and the wonderful depth that has.


  1. Rod sure like the job you did with the ribbon onyx, but why would you want to cover it with books?

  2. Customer preference. Thanks, Arthur--I am a big fan of yours. You have some amazing chops.
