Organizing The Dress-Up Clothes In Your Daughter’s Room

Most little girls love playing dress up. If your daughter's dress-up collection has taken over her room, it's time to make some changes. No, this doesn't mean getting rid of her collection — it means making it more useable and a part of the décor in the room. Here, you'll find a few tips to help you do just that.

Buy Picture Hooks

Those silky little dresses that she wears all over don't weigh very much, and they surely deserve something better than to be tossed into a bin or drawer. Instead, pick up a box of tool-free picture hooks – these hooks are mounted directly into the wall and will support the weight of the dresses that you hang on it. Arrange them on the wall so that the dresses can be hung and displayed while not being worn.

Tip: These can also be used to hold her jewelry, hair bands, wigs, and any other small accessories. Ask a company like Janco Products LLC for further advice.

Utilize High Wall Space

The area of wall space where the walls meet the ceiling — you don't use that for anything more than catching cobwebs, so why not use it to organize? You can pick up shelving brackets and a long board for next to nothing. Paint or stain the wood and install the shelf — leaving enough space on the shelf to put your daughter's dress-up shoes, tiaras, and other non-hangable accessories. Yes, this does require you to have to help her when she wants to get things down, but that's a much better option than you walking into the room and finding that she's removed everything from every bin trying to find her one pink princess shoe to match her outfit.

Hanging Shoe Bags

Hanging shoe bags have become very popular when it comes to toy storage. They help keep things organized while still allowing you to find what you're looking for. So, your daughter can use it to store her accessories to go with each outfit and will easily be able to see her options.

This might seem like a lot of work, but in reality it's an easy project that can be done in less than a day. Work together to get it done, or take care of it all while she's at school and surprise her when she gets home — either way, you're both going to love the change and how much easier it is for her to get prettied up like her favorite princesses.
