2013 was a banner year for FauxWoodBeams.com, full of success, surprises and of course great customers and their amazing projects. We're always interested in what sparks the interest of our fellow faux fans, and as the year comes to a close we look back and reflect on what got the most love in 2013.
What Got the Most Love in 2013
Most Loving Review
Custom Tuscany Beams Customer Rating: 5 Stars Submitted by Michelle E on February 1, 2013
I have attached before, during, and after pictures of my 1964 fireplace remodel. You cannot even tell it is the same fireplace! The beam is absolutely gorgeous, and anyone who comes to see it is amazed by how real it looks. Even though we ordered a 9’ long mantel, it was easy to install. I added a light coat of stain to achieve a darker look to match my décor, but I let some of the original Cedar stain show through. I am very pleased with the end result!
Thanks again for your wonderful customer service and amazing product!

It's hard to go wrong when a kitchen has big windows and a great view. Lovers of wood adore this design. Our faux wood beams, accented by beam straps, keep the ceiling from being an overwhelming white.

With its rugged, natural look of real rough-hewn wood, many sizes to choose from and ready to ship fast, it's no wonder why the Timber Beam is such a fan favorite.
