Princess Dress-Up Closet

Submitted by pde00311 on Tue, 01/19/2016 - 14:45

With my 3 1/2 year old girl who is really in a princess dress-up phase (and a 1 year old girl who likes to tag/crawl along), my Christmas present to them was a big hit. I first bought the two mirrors at IKEA and then modified the design around them, with added cubbies and shelves for princess shoes and tiaras, as well as a secret jewelry compartment. I built the decorative crown with different pieces of scrap wood. In all honesty, the modifications made it a little back-heavy and wobbly, so I ended up attaching it to the wall in the basement (which was probably a good idea anyway).
