How do you make white trim look like wood?

Gel-Glazed Grain If the plastic is a light or medium color, use a gel stain to create the wood look. Rub brown gel stain over the plastic with a rag, applying it largely in the same direction so it develops lighter and darker lines along the way. Add more gel stain to create a darker grain.

Can you paint baseboards to look like wood?
