This last month’s issue of Family Fun Magazine had an awesome idea for a girl’s room! Of course I had to do it! I have been wanting to put a mirror in Josie’s room. She loves to look at herself, dance, sing, etc. into a mirror. So, I decided she needed a mirror. When I saw this idea, I thought it would just be down right cute! http://familyfun.go.com/crafts/clothes-calls-890222/ The second reason I liked this idea is because it’s also like a life size dress up doll. Something else that Josie likes to play with.
So last week, I got it all done and put it together on her wall. It said to use a closet door, but her room isn’t designed like that. And I had some empty space on her wall!
I then painted a framed cork board (on clearance at Michaels for $1) that she could hang her necklaces and other random jewelry from. I put one of my favorite pictures of her in the picture holder in the middle.
This is the empty wall space I used to hang up the new creation!
And here is the end product! I’m so excited about it and I know Josie is too. I am going to change the shoe strings that hold the outfit. I want to braid some ribbon that would match her room. I like the shoe string idea, but I feel it’s like a locker room feel or something. I also added a circle cork board that I had gotten at IKEA (2 pack for $1 I believe) a long time ago. I seem to buy stuff that I like and think I will use it sometime. And it worked out this time! I’m not for sure what I’m going to use it for. I might let her hang her earrings on it. I also might add a couple more things to this as I find them, but this is it for now! Hope you enjoy my newest project!
