An Old Dresser to a Doll Closet

Hi Everyone,

Thanks for letting me share this project with you all today! It was a lot of fun putting it together with my lovelies and creating something we both loved.  You see, we have three little girls with a love for dollies.  My oldest especially, adores her doll and plays with her on a daily basis.  After their play times they tend to have all their doll clothes and accessories littered all over the house and bedrooms.  So we collectively decided to organize all their dolls' clothing and accessories.  We had an old dresser tucked away in a closet just taking up unnecessary space, barely used and transformed it into an American Doll closet.

My daughter's chose red and pink to give the dresser personality. Naturally, they wanted all shades of red and pink all over the dresser decorated with colorful stickers:)  So with this little mini makeover they got their colors and I got mine.   We removed the drawer pulls and bottom drawers.  I painted the inside of the "closet" pink and chose this polka dot fabric and black trim for panels.  We attached the fabric with a staple gun.  Inside of the closet is a dowel rod, which can be purchased from any hardware or craft store attached with an epoxy glue.

We found these adorable red and brassy gold pulls at Hobby Lobby and attached after I slightly distressed the dresser and added a wax coat to the painted finish.

Below is a close-up of the pulls and painted finish.

Inside the dresser draws we compartmentalized all their accessories.  Honestly, I am not sure how long the closet will stay organized, but it was a lot of fun putting all this together with the girls.

Thanks for reading along today. Enjoy your weekend!!
