Tonight’s reveal was inspired by a friend’s little girl who loves to play dress up. Her mom indulges her with a more than abundant number of costumes, dresses and accessories. The mom’s main complaint? An easy way to store and organize all of them and still let the little one get to them easily.
I’ve seen this adaptation before. Simple enough. I recently picked up a decent little dresser that I thought would turn into just this handy play center.I know I had a better photo of the dresser, but after hours of searching my computers, I can’t seem to locate it/them. (Another project on the list: organizing and backup of all my photos!)
Anyway, it was a pretty quick transition – simply removed the top three drawers and their tracks. The dresser had a simple construction and side tracks, so once those were removed, it was just a matter of adding a ‘bottom’ just above the bottom drawer. The Kid is getting so good at understanding and following my absurd instructions lately, its kind of scary!
Once he had that in, it was just a matter of priming and painting. This one was painted all in the lightest of the pink shades – blush pink – so, no taping or switching of rollers or brushes. Once that was done, a standard closet rod was added (so many leftover from previous closet remodels) and then picked out a pretty drawer pull. And it was done!
As you can see, it matches the other pieces, this beautiful shade of pink is so subtle yet so feminine.The newer construction of the piece means a clean simple interior on easy gliding tracks.I love this hardware… especially combined with the back plate. Simple yet elegant!Small children-sized hangers included! 🙂
This piece sold almost as quickly as I had it listed. I had an idea that at this time of the year, it might be a popular gift. I may try and do more of these before Christmas.
