Barbie Storage Board

barbie storage board

I have seen shoe holders transformed into Barbie storage before but I wanted mine to be different. Barbies are a fun time in little girls lives but finding something to store it in can sometimes be difficult depending on your situation. I personally haven't played with Barbies in a very long time but having two younger sisters that time has come. My challenge is space. Space is limited my siblings bedroom so I had to think of something that could storage their Barbies while not take up too much space while accomplishing my goal. Also price is a major aspect. Good thing that this project only costs $9.00. Here is how I made it:

I bought this canvas board from Dollarama for $3.00

I also bought this hanging shoe organizer for $3.00

It has 12 pockets. 

I took out the hanger. This project does not need it but I can use it for clothing later. 

I cut the hanging shoe organizer in half.

Then used a glue gun to glue the sides of the hanging shoe organizer to the sides of the canvas.

This is the bedroom wall before.

I have to hammer nails in because these walls seem to be made of concrete. I used two per frame.

The all I had to do was add the back of the canvas to the wall.

Many of these Barbies will have to bunch with another Barbie but over all my sister loves it. She nearly tackled me with hugs and thank yous. 

I believe this project turned out fantastic. I love how everything turned out and it looked really great. Can't wait to show you what else I have in store for my little sister's top bunk makeover.

  3. This is a great idea. I wonder if it would work for Transformers! We have too many of those around here. Thanks for linking up and sharing with us at Funtastic Friday. Hope you join us again this week.

    1. Thank you Sherry. Maybe it will work for your Transformers. It doesn't hurt to try it out. If it doesn't, you have yourself a pretty cool shoe holder :)
