Indigo Blue Dresser with Wooden Owl Knobs

As soon as I saw this piece, I knew I needed to paint one geared towards little fellas. I love the clean straight lines of this solid mid-century dresser. The drawers were perfect for this faux bois paper I've been dying to use. Then, I found these adorable wooden owl knobs...a little indigo paint and it's finished and ready for a rowdy little boy!

Here's a close up of this chest "before" the transformation.

This piece is for sale on my Etsy shop, The Turquoise Iris.

Happy Sunday!


  1. I LOVE it....those owl knobs against the faux bois are too cute! How do you get the paper to look distressed like that around the edges? Do you lay it and then sand it off, or paint it? Assuming you are open to sharing your secrets :)

  2. Very very cool. love the paper

  3. So cool. I have the same paper. I love how you used it.
    Very unique piece!
