Dress-ups (excuse us, ahem, Super Suits) are in full swing around here most everyday and we’ve found that keeping them all in a big bin usually means that they all end up all over the floor! Trying to find the matching mask, belt, can be tricky. So, here’s a quick Ikea Hack upgrade to keep everything organized and turn their favorite pastime into a little shrine!
All you need is this “Grundtal” Towel Rail from Ikea. It has two bars so you could also use the top as storage for bigger pieces. We love the clean look of everything hanging, as shown. Hang up all your dress-ups by outfit, tucking and securing belts, hats and masks right on to the hanger either with a clothespin, safety pin or over the hook. We hung this right above eye level so the bigger boys can grab easily, but they don’t drag.
If you’re looking to start your own super dress-up collection, here are some favorites:
Captain America // Bumblebee Transformer // Wolverine // Power Ranger // The Flash // Iron Patriot // Ninja //
Are your kids into dress-up? What characters do they love to be? It seems that every kid we know calls them something different, but takes it pretty equal in seriousness.
Don’t miss these posts, too! Meet a Small Fry who has a new dress-up and accompanying persona everyday! // And another who’s obsessed with vacuums.

I don’t understand how this is an ikea hack. You didn’t hack anything. It’s just an ikea purchase.

Hi! Thanks for reading! This is originally a bathroom rack that we used instead for a costume rack. May not be a hack but we think we’re pretty clever I guess? 🙂
