A Peek into a Princess' Closet~

Remember a week or so ago, when I was lamenting the doorless closets in our home? Well, I finally have the Princess' closet organized. And you know what? It's almost cute enough to leave as is. Almost.


I still think I'll add a pretty set of curtains to frame out the doorway, although I doubt we'll ever close them.

And in case any of you doubted that a Princess really does live at my house...check out this collection of princess dresses.

Why not use something like these dresses as an accessory? They add to the feeling of whimsy, and their pastel colors are perfect for a little girl's room. The rocking chair tucked underneath has been a favorite reading spot for the Princess ever since I put it there. (and in case anyone was wondering...nothing is cuter than seeing that little girl sitting amidst all of her dress-ups devouring a Fancy Nancy book...trust me.)


And because somebody is bound to ask...all of the Princess' pants, shirts and other wearables are in her dresser. She does actually own clothes besides dresses. ;-)

This has nothing whatsoever to do with the closet. But you may remember this lamp makeover. Well, the little lamp got a fancier shade, and now resides on the Princess' dresser. So pretty.



And a little sidenote...as of this writing, I am just about 900 page views away from reaching 1,000,000 page views...that's right 1 million!! And since I owe this wonderful milestone to YOU MY FABULOUS READERS...I think it calls for a giveaway. Come back Monday and we'll celebrate together!!

Coming up next week:
  • My reader-appreciation giveaway
  • New vintage items for my Etsy shop
  • A design consultation
  • My big kitchen chalkboard reveal

Have a great weekend~

I was just posting my girls room before and after and your post came up and I had to come see your little girls room! dont you love girly stuff? the room is adorable! and of course you must have fairy dresses! very cute! well done!

Vanessa said...

The closet looks amazing! I'm so inspired by it that I might do the same in daughters closet. I guess it would also add the feeling of a bigger room too.
Congratulations on your million views! That really is something to celebrate about!

Carmen said...

You have to say it like Dr. Evil...1,000,000 page views...haha.

Her closet is totally perfect for a Princess!!! Love her little chair in there.

julie said...

i think my princess has the same exact dress-up dresses that your princess has! i am in the process of trying to redo her closet and plan on having a little reading nook too! looks sweet!

Dana said...

Your little closet looks beautiful. I did the same thing for my little girl Ava in her room, and added curtains too. I found little princess tiara tie-backs at Hobby Lobby. It turned out really cute, and I love not worrying about her getting her fingers smashed in the doors. I do have to say, your closet is much neater! Our Ava bird has too many toes in hers. She loves princess and fairy dresses too!

Sew Fun! said...

the closet looks awesome! the matching bins are great...but i love your bucket of shoes!! i think i am goign to implement this idea in my daughter's closet...which btw also doesn't have doors, and we DO have a curtain...it's white with an eyelet ruffle at the top...we like to keep it closed at night, less distraction and fewer "odd"(sometimes creepy) closet shadows. but otherwise we leave the curtain open more or less all day.

Her closet is so pretty and organized! Good job!

Congrats at hitting almost 1,000,000 views! When did you start blogging?

Amber said...

Her closet looks so cute. I can imagine her sitting in her little reading chair. I always get such a feeling of satisfaction after organizing. Hope you are basking in the satisfaction!

Morgan said...

My daughter was known as the Purple Princess when she was about five. Her closet was full of purple clothes and that purple dress you have hanging up would have been envied. She still loves purple, but not to wear. Her bedroom is now two tones of the colour.
Curtains framing the closet would look lovely. xx

This makes me think back to when my (now almost 14 year old) daughter was a little princess. Sweet and innocent...and all pink! Ugh...now I've got a "sometimes sweet" and hopefully as "innocent as I think she is" teen!
I do love the closet...looks clean and organized. Doesn't get any better than that!

Priscila said...

Gayla said...

I love that closet! It is sooo cute! I love the idea of putting the rocking chair in the little nook, and my favorite is the lovely green paint color with the beadboard. yay! i'm not even pregnant and already ideas are spinning in my head for little girls' rooms. :)

oh! meant to say the closet reminds me of kate's little girl's closet on centsational girl. do you read her?

Tiffany said...

Oh, wow, what a blessed little princess! Such a beautiful closet! Her dress collection is so fun and I love the ballet shoes by the lamp! So precious.
