The weather is starting to turn a little cooler. As fall approaches I get into cleaning mode. The other day when I was cleaning out my daughters closet, I was hanging up all of her princess dress up clothes. As most little girls her age, Caroline loves to dress up in her favorite princess clothes. Currently she has over 4 dresses to choose from for Halloween. I wanted to have the dresses out for her to play with during the cool months ahead. I found my inspiration at a yard sale.
This plant stand was it! The minute I saw it I thought it would be a perfect dress stand for Caroline’s dresses. For a couple of bucks, it became mine. It was actually black when I first found it (sorry about the lack of a before shot, I was so excited to start the project that I failed to take a before picture). After a quick trip to Lowe’s to get some cleaning supplies, I got to work.
I am addicted to Magic Erasers! Seriously, no parent should be without one of these things! When I saw the Outdoor Pro Magic Eraser I was very excited. After a quick cleanse with the eraser, the stand was ready for some spray paint. I painted the stand a nice shade of baby girl pink that is perfect for any little princess. After washing the dresses in our favorite Tide detergent, I hung the dresses and headbands from the plant stand and “poof!” a quick and easy princess dress up station!
Now Caroline is going to be ready for playing indoors this fall.
