I used an old dresser we had in our bedroom that was collecting dust and junk.
Sanded it down and rolled on a couple coats of primer.
After the the primer was completely dry, I rolled on a couple coats of mint paint.I thought mint would pop nicely against the cotton candy pink walls in Miss K's room.
I drilled three holes on the side of the shelf and inserted drawer knobs. This made the perfect spot to hang boas and jewelry.
Next, I screwed three hooks along the top trim, two on the sides and one in the middle, then hung a bright pink sash across them.
Lastly, I added a tension rod on the inside to hang the gowns on.
I re-purposed the book shelves into princess signage around the party that would also serve as wall art for Miss K's room .
It was a magical afternoon and a huge success !!
I hope you enjoyed this post. I'm so excited to have the opportunity to guest post here at Gingerly Made!
Have a blessed day !!
