I bought one of their basic upgrade kits to do the graining on my 52. Is there anyone out there who is considering the same and as an alternative would you be interested in 'renting' the kit I bought? I'll ship it to you. You ship it back to me when you're done. This is the $450 kit and includes the woodgrain compound and the toning compound (I only used a small amount of what was included in the kit, so there is plenty left). http://www.woodgraining.com/
My work wasn't great, lol, but it was a big improvement over what I had. A previous owner had painted all my mouldings a solid color so there was no woodgrain left anywhere. Grain it can also sell you spray cans of the base coat. I bought these from them as well (@$30
a can). You could match a color at the hardware store possibly. Mine was the blue base coat and I couldn't find a blue one for reference, so it was the path I chose. I can send you a link to my flickr account which has some pictures.
