Since my last post about our girls’ playroom, I have had lots of comments and questions about our dress up storage solution. I saw something similar to this on Pinterest several years ago, and it’s worked great for us since.
We simply took a 3×3 cube organizer that we already had in Raley’s nursery, removed some walls and shelves, and added a tension shower curtain rod. Today I will show you how we did this.
How to Create a Simple Dress Up Storage Solution
Since we created this dress up storage solution several years ago, I obviously can’t share any “in process” photos, but I’ll do my best to explain it in a way that makes sense!
This cube organizer is made up of two long pieces, and 6 smaller pieces. Make sure it is positioned in a way that the long pieces are vertical (walls) and the short pieces are horizontal (shelves).
You’re going to remove the screws that are holding the long vertical wall in place and the screws that are holding the shelves in place (all found on the outside of the organizer.)
If I remember correctly, the shelves are held in place in the center by wooden dowels, so you will need to replace these dowels with screws so that the remaining shelves don’t sag.
Obviously if you are buying this new specifically to create storage for your dress up items, you will just set these pieces aside and only put together the one wall with shelves.
I got a short tension shower rod to hang the dresses on.
We use fabric cube storage containers to hold other dress up items such as shoes, skirts, gowns that we don’t want to hang up, etc. We also have a tall mirror and a little chest that sits to the side which holds their headbands, play jewelry, sunglasses, and other accessories. You could certainly store these things in your cubes if you wanted.
It’s as easy as that! If you have any questions, feel free to contact me, I’d be happy to help!
