Finished Playhouse

The Playhouse is Done!!!! 

I am so excited to share this finished project with you, like many project I do it starts with a little idea and then snowballs into something way bigger.  If my husband had it his way we would have thrown up the walls, slapped a little paint on it and called it good.  I think my vision turned out better than his.  


The Grocery Store was a complete surprise for the kids, they love to play store so I thought it would be perfect in here.



I love these signs they turned out great


I searched high and low for food to go in the playhouse but all that I could find was a ice cream package and some fruit and veggies so I decided to make my own felt food.  These were my first attempts.  I have many more to make for the kids but I ran out of time to get it all done.  Plus I couldn't make them wait any longer to see it. 


I found this cute ice cream kit at Ikea



This bench was made for the kids playhouse by their Grandpa,  I store all the extra craft stuff in here.


I couldn't do a playhouse without a craft table for the kids, they love to craft just as much as I do. 


I found these cute buckets at easter time as stocked them away for this very project.  The hooks I picked up from the dollar store. The trick is to see if the stuff will actually all stay where it is supposed to go. 



I tried to make everything have a little vintage feel to it.  One of my favorite projects so far.

 I finished this late last night so this morning I got the kids up and first thing they got to do was check it out.  The looks on their faces is what makes this all worth it.  I know they are going to have so many hours of fun and create so many memories in this space.

Deanne said...

this is a fantastic kids space, the grocery store is just too cute and looks like it would be quite easy to convert to other things when the kids tire of selling groceries- soda shop, bakery spring to mind!
