Creating A Wood Grain On Beams

I was able to finish the project where I painted the two large beams to look like wood.   It was a big challenge to get the sides of the beams painted with a wood grain where the light fixture was hung but I did manage somehow.  It's one of things that when you get done you look at it and say how did I do that?  But the whole job came out and great and the client loved it.

Some photos of the finished project.  Hard to believe it was painted and not actually beautiful wood.
