not-just-for-walls paper

wallPaper
so, i've decided to refinish an old dresser. it's tall and skinny, of the six-drawer variety. maybe more of a lingerie chest. anyway, i had this idea to paint it cream, add fancy new knobs and wallpaper the sides. it'll either look fabulous, or fabu-trash. but, since it's old, i don't mind taking a risk. if it turns out terrible it's an excuse to get a shiny new one and if it's great, well then it's great! really it's a win-win. anyway, i've been searching high and low for paper and i think i've found it at the amazing mod green pod. i'm not sure how little me the consumer can get some, so i've sent them an inquiry. the pattern i like is called grand jubilee. what do you think, black or brown?

I'd go with the brown...it might end up giving it a hand-painted feel! I'm excited to see what the final outcome is... Good luck!

great news! they sell directly to the consumer if there isn't a shop in their area. that'd be me! now time for a decision. the paper i like is $90 per roll. i think one roll will do the trick, but what if it ends up looking bad? then i'll have to live with it if i spend that much. i think i'll poke around this weekend and see what i see. i'm just glad to have this resource in my back pocket.

Oh I can't wait to see how yours turns out. I have had this idea on my mind for awhile but haven't attempted it yet. I've seen in the past several pieces done like this and they are gorgeous so I'm sure yours will be too. I love the pattern you chose too. I like both colors but I think I like the black better. I'm sure whichever one you do will look great!

I'm more interested in the changing of the knobs part of your post. I'm sure you know Antropologie is having a sale. Check out the multiflower knob in silver. Love me some black and silver. And the knobs would play up the dot pattern in the wallpaper. Just a thought.
