Materials: hemnes changing table/dresser (not sure if the name is correct, i bought the piece from the "As-Is" section), brush & white semi-gloss paint, sand paper, decorative contact paper, tension rod, decorative baskets

Description: I created a dress-up wardrobe closet for my 3 yr old daughter from what i think is a discontinued Hemnes baby changing table/dresser. I'm not sure of the Ikea name because I bought it from the "As-Is" section of the store.

Anyway, from the original piece i removed the drawers and the sliders. Sanded the furniture & painted it with white semi-gloss. After drying i lined the inside of the main wardrobe area & the Back of the cubby area with decorative contact paper...could've used wall paper too but wall paper cost more. I attached the short tension rod (short shower curtain rod) i found from a dollar store, on the main part of the wardrobe. Placed the decorative baskets on the cubby and voila! A dress-up wardrobe closet!
