So I'm going to fix up my doll trunk from my childhood. The thing is really cool. But I want to add a new kind of hanger inside.
Can someone tell me where I can get something like this to use?
Or some idea on how I could make something like that?

The photos are too small for me to make out, could you post larger ones?

I just updated them to the bigger version for Arty.  The thumbnail version is pretty small, isn't it?

SO fun!  I can't wait to see it when it's done.

I bet you could even use something like a drawer pull, right?  You'd have lots of style options that way, too!  https://www.homedepot.com/p/Liberty-Mission-4-1-4-in-108mm-Wrought-Iron-Bail-Drawer-Pull-PN8005-SAM-A/202023812

Thanks! It's such a cute unit. Some tidying, new paper, replacement drawer and it will be uber charming I'm sure.
The hanger in there looks very sturdy and the perfect size, could you remove it to give it a cleaning and then reuse it? I can't imagine something that would work better.

Seeing this brought back such memories!!!!!  I had one too!  I haven't seen one in years!  I have no answer for you but I do hope you find what you need.

Not exactly the same design, but here are some options at Amazon:

I don't own any wooden doll trunks, but I have four fabric zippered Bratz and Polly Pocket ones.  Mostly, I just keep my dolls in cardboard boxes, inside plastic bags, or heaped in untidy piles.

The doll trunk that I have a bed that folds up inside, and a little desk! Its pretty darn cool. I've already made replacement drawers since those were missing.  Other than that, its in pretty good shape. I'm probably going to keep the hanger it has. Seems like it works good.
