IKEA Cabinet Transformation

An IKEA cabinet transformed! I don’t typically work with IKEA pieces but something about this stood out to me.

Sometimes a piece isn’t exactly what it’s advertised to be. During quarantine, I was feeling anxious about running out of things to paint.

This Kilgour & Bro. walnut dresser had so much potential. I saw it from the pictures. What I didn’t see in the pictures was the smell that came with it.
