The Reveal! Little Girl Closet to Play-Space Conversion

Well, here it is!  The grand reveal of the pretty pretty princess playroom...for those who love some alliteration :o) Recently we transformed our daughter's walk-in closet into a play-space and it's become quite the gathering place for whimsical little girl fun.

Drumroll...

View as you walk in with the closet curtains shut.  So much prettier than a closet door, right?!



And, voila!  With the curtains open...step into Wonderland, friends.



We have dress-up hooks and a mirror at toddler level...


The coolest dollhouse and furniture collection from Maw Maw!


The cutest hot pink sequined deer head I've ever seen.  Thank you Homegoods clearance aisle!  How did nobody else want this??  Don't answer that if you don't agree...


I searched high and low for a sparkly chandelier and couldn't find anything (new or used) that came even close to the price and quality of this IKEA pendant light.  This is a staple item that IKEA definitely did right...it's like icing on the cake for this little space.


So, what do you think of the overhaul?


I know that despite the cuteness factor some of you may think we're crazy for giving up a closet, but we had a few good reasons (for those of you who are interested):

1) In this house we're blessed with more square footage and storage space than we've ever had (or needed for just 3 people), so a walk-in closet was a bit overkill for a 3-year-old whose clothes easily fit into a single dresser.

2) Since it wasn't being utilized as a closet, the "storage space" was just turning into a junk collection site.  We move often and frequently get rid of stuff we don't use.  We've been in this house for a year and a half now (that's a long time for us!), so we had gathered way too much "stuff".  It was time to purge a bit.

Regardless of how crazy we are, you've got to admit that this closet is smile-inducing.  Sort of makes you want to come in, throw off your shoes, put on your dress-up of choice, and play house for a while, huh??

Oh man, I wish WE had a big old empty space like that! Our girls are bustin' at the seams sharing a room and a closet. The "stuff" is everywhere! I had to put the dollhouse in the attic, which totally sucks. This kind of space would be soooo awesome for them. I bet she's thrilled to have it. I've always wanted a dress up station like that for Em. Instead, all our stuff is shoved in a basket in the closet. Because it's not super accessible, she rarely gets into it. I'm completely jealous. If I had to pick a favorite thing, I'd say the chandelier, but really it's just the space in general that's awesome.
