Some folks have asked me about the faux finish shown below because the photos were not adequate in size/quality,.. for proper viewing. As far as the technical part of posting this blog, I'm learning as I go along, so please bear with me!
Here's another attempt.
This was a finish that wasn't meant to look like any particular material (suede, granite,...) - it was just an abstract design using monochromatic colors.
I emlarged and lightened the photos a little from the previous post. Hopefully you can see it better here.
And here are some closeups...
