American Girl Doll Cabinet

I saw this project on Pinterest as a dress-up cabinet and had to copy the idea. I bought the dresser for $20 at a thrift store. My husband removed the top three drawers and cut off the wood molding that held the drawers in. He also had to add some small wood pieces using wood glue and a piece of plywood to the bottom. The dresser had some water damage on the bottom so we bought, cut and attached some crown molding to cover it up. He also added a dowel at the top to hang the doll hangers on. You may want to add a bigger dowel if you are making this a dress-up cabinet. After primer, two coats of white paint and new drawer pulls it was done.


  1. Very cool! What did you use for the shoe organizer rack? Also, did you put accessories in the bottom drawers? Great ideas! Thank you for sharing!
