dress up cart

My niece is just starting to play dress up with hats and shoes so for her 2nd birthday, I made this dress up cart from the wonderful Ana White website (project plans here).  The original plan calls for a closet rod for hangers.  I didn't think my nice would be able to hang things on hangers yet - she is only 2 after all - so I altered it for hooks. 

Loaded up with her birthday gifts
Project Details

Time:  About an hour to cut and build and three hours to sand, paint and attach the hooks.

Type of Wood:  Pine

Finish:  2 coats of primer and 1 coat of semi-gloss paint (white mixed with a little yellow from previous projects)
Project cost:  $60 total.  $32 for the lumber (Lowe's), $17 for the hooks (Menards) and $11 for the letters (Michaels).  The paint, screws and glue was leftover from a previous project.
