When I was a little girl I was so envious of another girl who lived on my street. You see, she had a cool little playhouse in her backyard that was painted pink and sported a dutch door. Although I grew up pretty spoiled - we even had a pool - I always longed for a playhouse. What little girl doesn't?
When I became a mom to two little girls of my own, I thought about that playhouse again. My husband promised me that he would build our girls one. It seemed like such a huge undertaking to build one from scratch and years went by and we never seemed to have the money or time to start it. Both girls worked their way through elementary school and still no playhouse. We decided that we had better get that playhouse built or the girls would be too "old" to enjoy it.
Finally last summer the playhouse became a reality.
Take a look from start to finish.
This is what it looked like with almost everything on the exterior finished and painted. The color is the same yellow as our house.
We gave it the house number 610 1/2 because our real address is 610.
A little porch light. It actually works.
All lit up at night.
Of course the inside is just as cute as the outside. I made sure to fill it with some vintage dishes and decor found at yard sales. What fun! Maybe I'll post some pics some time.
I think once the girls are done using it I may just move in myself.
