Dress up trunk

My five year old niece loves to dress up so I had this amazing idea to make her a steamer trunk for Christmas!!! I took my brothers (her dad) old foot locker and stood it up, lined it with old dictionary pages. Bought some hooks and painted them, also bought a gorgeous old mirror and tons of old clothes from our amvet thrift store!!!! It was a huge hit she loved it!!!!
