Inspired by Pinterest- Old Dresser-New Doll Closet

So one thing I love to do is roam around Pinterest looking for fun ideas, and there are plenty. But how many of these pins are actually worth our time ? Well I am going to find out . Our Inspired by Pinterest will now be a regular feature on our blog.

We are going to feature the best pins for creative American Girl 18" Doll creative ideas and bring them to you here. So let's all get inspired..

 The first pin I wanted to share was this really creative bookshelf or old dresser doll closet. I have seen so many bookshelves and old dressers at garage sales for $5-$10.  So not only is this functional but very cost effective. I also love that they used tensions rods to hang the clothes on. So easy, no hammering or extra building.

 And what little girl would not want a doll closet this big. It's also an easy way for them to see what they have. My daughter has all her doll clothes stuffed in drawers right now and I can never remember what clothes she has. I really love this idea and I hope you do too.  :)

P.S. I am going to look for a bookshelf or old dresser this summer at garage sales and give this a try. 
I will post it when I am done.


  1. Very neat idea! I tried to send you an invite, but I'm not sure it went through to you. I started a group/collaborative board for AG Ideas. I wanted you to be part and pin to the board. If you are interested here is the url:
    Just leave me a message so I know where/which profile to add you.
    Take care,

  2. Thanks, I will look for the invite in my email.


  3. I haven't made a bookshelf into a doll closet yet but it's definitely a goal once I'm in my own place. But one thing I do have that helps me keep my shoes super organized is one of those hanging jewelry organizers. Each little pouch is perfect for a pair of doll shoes. And mine has 6 bigger pouches at the bottom (it's double sided) perfect for boots. I keep mine in my closet right now but I think on the outside of your doll closet putting a 3M removable hook would be the perfect option for a shoe hanger.

  4. That's a great idea too. Thanks for sharing :)
