This week, instead of showing something I did around the house, I thought it might be time to reblog one of my most popular posts on how to build an inexpensive doll closet!

Does your daughter have an American Girl Doll (or similar 18 inch doll) or possibly Barbie Dolls or Stuff a Plush with lots of clothes and accessories, but you have no way of keeping it organized? Well I am here to help! I am going to guide you in creating a doll closet for storing all her doll or bear clothes, shoes, and accessories. And it uses somethings you may already have or can get pretty cheap!
First, you want to find a two shelf bookshelf. You can find them for less than $20 usually in stores. For aesthetics, you want one with a back on it, and if you want it to match your daughter’s room or playroom, you can either find one in a matching color or paint it. Your choice. So assemble the bookshelf and make your lower shelf be about 6 inches high. You want to make sure that your clothes will be able to hang nicely. Then you will need a tension rod. place it about 2 inches from the top and VOILA! You have a closet for all your dolly clothes! You can use the lower bottom section of the closet for shoes and other accessories and the top to hang the clothes. It is simple. It keeps things organized, and if you have to buy the materials, it should only run you about $25.
