Are dress up clothes taking over your house? I have enough issues with regular laundry to then pile on top a bunch of princess costumes, my house was becoming a wreck quickly. I wanted to create an area in our play room that would be fun to play and use but that would also create some organization for all of the stuff! This easy dress up station was just the right fit for our little princess.

By creating some order to our princess mess, I found that my daughter is actually playing with this stuff! Before she either couldn’t find her stuff because it was wherever she dropped it or I had shoved it in the bottom of the closet in an attempt to clean up. Now that she can easily see her pretty dresses and jewels, she usually becomes Belle or Sophia once or twice a week!

What you Need for the Easy Dress Up Station:
Setting Up the Easy Dress Up Station
The adjustable garment rack took less than 15 minutes to put together and that was the first thing that I did. Once that was ready, my daughter helped me hang up all of her princess dresses. The dress up area isn’t just limited to princess costumes. She can dress up as a chef, vet, or a girly super hero.
I stored extra dress up clothes and play shoes at the bottom of the rack. (Don’t mind that missing Elsa from the blue shoe! Hey, they still work!)
Next, I had my daughter stand in front of where the mirror would go. I did this because I wanted it to be a “kid friendly” mirror. (not hung so high that she wouldn’t even be able to see her face)! We hung the mirror so that she could see her full princess ball gown in all it’s glory.
The princess wall art was hung level with the top of the mirror. The hooks went right under the art so that she could easily reach her purses and jewels.
I set our vanity next to the easy dress up station so that she can move right on to hair and make up once she gets dressed. I love that this area provides a fun play area for kids to use their imagination. Plus it helps to get the princess dress mess off my floor.
