DIY Ikea Dresser Makeover

DIY Ikea Dresser MakeoverA few of you noticed this from last week’s make your own art project, but YES! The pink dresser is in fact a DIY! I’ve always wanted a colorful dresser and somehow was able to convince Ryan to let me go pink when discussing our bedroom makeover…thank god we’re getting married!
