I should really be at my sewing machine because Mrs. Claus still has one last project to finish, but I just got done sewing the theater curtains and have to take a quick break to show you the finished dress up closet/puppet theater that Santa is bringing! Lots of credit to Ana White's easy-to-follow plans and to The Picky Apple for thinking of adding the theater, plus my dad for cutting all the wood and pre-drilling everything for me so all I had to add was paint, hardware, curtains and costumes. Originally I was going to purchase something very similar from Guidecraft, but I hated the pastels of their product and thought I could build it for less. I was delighted to find similar plans online and then the theater idea just seemed too perfect not to incorporate! My dad and I made a slight change to the design to allow the front to hinge so the girls won't have to climb over the front lip to use the theater. Now that it's finally complete, I am absolutely thrilled with how it turned out! You can see in the pics below how it spins around from dress up storage to puppet theater, and how the front hinges down flush with the bottom for the theater : )
