They have "graining" tools at paint stores. Pieces of plastic that will leave a mark in the wood that looks like grain.

I saw this on an episode of Design on a Dime on HGTV. They painted closet doors brown and took a hair comb and combed the paint and then used their fingers to make knot holes.

I am a faux finisher and scenic artist by trade. If you email me I will tell you how to achieve this look.

I faux finished this treasure chest for a show at Seaworld where I work. Very easy to do.
