Pink and White Striped Dresser

Hello lovely Friends!! Today I'm sharing another makeover of a makeover, only this is a piece I've had as long as my 14 year old...his baby changing table!

After he no longer needed it as a changing table (and because I'm cheap), I decided that rather than buy him a big boy dresser, why not cut off the awkward hump to make it look more like a dresser? And so we did: I've added a few affiliate … [Read more...]
