The Playroom: Dress Up Area

Kids Dress Up Area with Picture Ledges Above

One of my kids favorite activities is dressing up. At least once a day Sam appears in some sort of “costume”. We have had a bin of dress up for a while, but I wanted to give the kids a spot with some hooks and space to see some of their accessories. I still need to weed out some things (the bin below is still full), but it feels good to have finally devoted a corner to this activity.

I ordered these cute hooks from Land of Nod. The hooks for the hats are just the removable hooks, since I figured they might change over time.

Hats & Colorful Hooks

Here is a run down of what I spent:
2 45″ Ikea RIBBA Picture Ledges (Cut down on one side to fit perfectly in the space): $14.99 x 2=$29.98
2 White 11×14 Picture Frames from Target (I already owned the rest): $12.95 x 2= $25.90
4 Removable Hooks: ~$5.00
2 Mutliplayer Wall Hooks from Land of Nod: $14.95 x 2=$29.90

TOTAL: $90.78

I was hoping to spend about $50 for the dress up area, which I fortunately managed to do. I spent a little bit more on the picture rails and frames then I had hoped, but it was nice to not have to make the rails from scratch, otherwise they would probably still be half finished (considering I only spent about an hour hanging the ledges and another half hour putting up the hooks). I think I am most excited about getting some stuff off of the floor and giving them a proper home, which makes it a lot easier for the kids to put their own stuff away.

I hope everyone has a great weekend! I am hoping to finally get the shelves organized.
