Let's Play Pretend

So all last week, I was working on a special present for the BF's twin nieces 2nd birthday, their very own dress up wardrobe filled with lots of fancy treasures to enjoy.  It was so much fun to create and the girls just loved it. 

For Sale: Custom Dress Up Wardrobes
Everyone loved the dress up wardrobe so much, that I've decided to sell custom/personalized wardrobes through my Etsy site.  For more information click here.

Here's a quick step-by-step of all the work that went into it...

Step 1: We bought the wood, paint, trim, mirror, chalkboard paint, and hooks...then the BF cut everything down to size.
Step 2: We began to put the big pieces together (materials used: wood glue, a nail gun, a level, and the BF"aka: Someone Very Handy").

Step 3: Notched out a space to add the top piece.

Step 4: Wood puttied the nail holes and sanded it all down smooth.

Step 5: Added the wheels to the bottom.

Step 6: Applied two coats of primer, three coats of light pink to the entire outside, and taped off the name plate.

Step 7: Painted the border and names chocolate brown.

Step 8: Painted the inside dark pink and painted on the chalkboard paint on one of the sides.

Step 9: Took apart the hook plate and painted all the hooks chocolate brown.

Step 10: Taped off and painted the chevron pattern.

Step 11: Attached all the hooks and polyurethane.
