DIY Dress-Up Board

Bean has an ever-expanding selection of dress-up clothes and finding a place for them has been bit of a challenge.  Usually they are in her closet, on the floor, in toy buckets, just everywhere.  I decided to try and make her a place to keep them all.

I found the wood at Home Depot in the back of their lumber department.  Most locations will have a bucket or float filled with pieces of wood cut from someone else's projects.  I believe the board cost $1.27.  We picked up the knobs and hooks there too for about $12.  I sanded and painted the board with paint from my "oops" paint collection and then used some Martha Stewart Pink Luster Glitter paint as a wash over the top for the added sparkle.  You gotta have the sparkle!

When everything was dry, I used my Silhouette to cut out the little girl and the phrase.  My spacing got a little jacked up but the six year-old isn't criticizing.

Hubz added the hardware and hung it up for us.

I am hoping this new addition to her room will inspire Bean to hang her dress-up clothes back up after she is done playing with them and the days of fishing them out of closets and toy buckets are over.

I have linked up this post at several linky parties.  Please check out the Places I Party here!

  3. I love this idea! I would love if you would share it on my meet up Monday blog party.

  4. That's so cute! I think I'd even love that in my room! (Never mind that I'm technically too old for playing 'dress up' LOL)

  5. Oh how totally cute. Any girl would love to have this in there room. What a great idea. I would love to make one, but I don't think my 19 year old son would like it at all. Maybe I should make one for myself!


Thanks for your comments!
