Colorful Couch

Bought the couch from IKEA....pretty boring with the plain white color!

So we had a crazy idea to make the couch looks bright and colorful. We let Arwen and Leia took part and free painting the couch as their liking.

Family Project : Colorful Couch

Here it is........our new couch!
