8 Dress Up Storage Solutions

8 dress up storage ideas featured at Childhood 101

We recently had a Council-run, large rubbish removal in our area and as people put out their unwanted goods I was scanning the verges for one very particular item – a dresser I could convert into a dress up cupboard. How lucky was I?!! My neighbour across the road was getting rid of the perfect specimen, so I sent Dad 101 over to bring it home and it’s now sitting in my garage mid-makeover! While I get to finishing it off, I thought I would share some dress up storage solutions that might inspire you to get those dress ups out of the big plastic tub and hanging up in your kids play space.

  1. These are great ideas. I currently store dress ups in two large tubs, but the idea needs revising as it’s always a mess!

  2. I’m working on a dress-up corner for my toddler, who I make costumes for (for cosplay at conventions) and I have been looking for an inexpensive solution that does not involve buying or making a large piece of furniture (I feel that we have too much furniture!). I came across these racks on Amazon that look like a really great option for hanging clothes – you can hang them at whatever height is best for your child, and it adjusts 3-5 feet wide, which is perfect. And at the moment it’s only $36! They also have a $15 option that fits up to 8 hangers (probably less when you consider the poofiness of princess dresses).
