Dramatic Play Cabinet

BEFORE
AFTER
I finally finished (well almost, still need to find some hooks for the top part)the dramatic play area dress-up cabinet. I L-O-V-E the way it turned out. The best part is it only cost me around $10 to make. I found the dresser on Craig's list for FREE, then tore it apart and used 2 of the drawers nailed together to make the top shelf which will house the hooks for all the hats and tiaras then nailed the bottom piece of one of the drawers to the drawer casing along the inside of the cabinet so the remaining drawer has a top. After that, I primed and painted, glued in wrapping paper to look like wallpaper. Mod podged the paper as well as the knobs. Then I added a white shower curtain rod and some cute little white hangers. I repaired my little table and chairs white too. I can't wait for school to start! Okay, maybe I can.. Sorry about the quality of the pictures. I use my iphone and ipad and for some reason they always turn out dark and grainy. :-(

What a cute idea. My students are a bit older and I keep thinking of a good way to teach the life skill of hanging up and folding clothing. I think this would be another great use for your craft! I hope I get around to making one.
