this makeover I found on pinterest.
The biggest hurdle to overcome once I decided to start was dealing with Punky Brewster's paint choices. It was very retro.
I also wanted to add, the biggest expense on this project was the $6 I spent on fabric. Everything else, including the paint, were leftovers from other projects!
So are you ready to see the transformation??
Isn't she pretty now?
The drawer pulls are Mary Engelberit, I believe. I found them several years ago at a charity rummage sale and they were used on another dresser, but they didn't work with the dresser once we redid the girls' room. So they went back in the "use later" pile.
And what's behind the curtains?
Dress up clothes!
This is a carefully disguised dress up play station for the little girls. We hung all their dress up gear, including the tutus, behind the curtains. In the spotted basket (found at DollarTree) are the fun hats and tiaras. Inside the wicker basket are puppets. The plan is to put furniture moving disks under the stand. If the girls want to pull down all the clothes (something I know is going to happen frequently!), they can push out the stand and perform puppet shows.
Behind each of the doors, we also have other fun creative play items including play dough, coloring supplies and a few games.
And what dress up station is complete without a mirror?
I'm still on the fence about whether or not to keep this white. I was thinking black. If I leave it to Punky Brewster, it will be pink. And pink isn't going to happen. ;)
I also took inspiration from Pinterest. Lots of people turn these into kitchens. :) I wanted to be different. Linking this up on Young House Love's Pinterest Challenge for Winter :D
