After tiring of seeing her costumes and play accessories all about, I was inspired by this pin to build a costume closet. I found an old 4-drawer dresser at the Salvation Army and tossed out all but one drawer. We sanded the dresser, added trim and a shelf, and painted it.
My girl loves anything yellow so I pasted some decorative paper on the inside and hung a yellow mirror on the outside.
With the addition of a hanging rod and some hooks, she now has the perfect place to corral all her tutus, costumes, superhero capes, jewellry, and princess shoes.
The bottom drawer holds smaller accessories like masks, gloves, purses – and of course kitty cat ears!
Now that Chloe has her costumes out on display, two surprising things have happened – she plays with her costumes more, and she likes keeping them neat and orderly! She’ll even ask me to put things back on hangers when playtime is over. Weird kid :) Maybe I should put pretty wallpaper in my closet and it’ll entice me to keep things neat.
