My bestie (AKA Chelsea) wanted to distress some Ikea drawers to go in her room. I have distressed a few pieces of furniture before but never as big as this.
I loved how it turned out!!

Our garage smelled like paint for a few days but so worth seeing this cute furniture in her room at the end!!

Don't you love it?

So cute...i have that some piece of furniture but in light wood. I think I am going to do that as soon as Tadd and I have a place to put to piece of furniture in. I think it would be even cuter by adding cute anthro hardware...I am so inspired to change my furniture now!!!
