Answer for How to paint metal exterior door to look like walnut wood?

What you are referring to is called wood graining. This involves a base color (paint), a layer of stain applied and using a graining tool to move the stain around into a wood grain pattern. Let it dry then protect with a clear coat.

Wood graining isn't easy but with some practice it is doable. Check out Old Masters stains website, they have a good instruction manual that you can download. It has good details about this entire process.
