We bought a...

You guys! We went and did it. We bought our very first house.

Well playhouse.

It's large enough to be considered an extension of our home - so does that count? Jokes aside I have been scouring Craigslist for some time now in pursuit of the perfect playhouse. After letting two slip through my fingers I was one determined mama. Sure I could buy a brand new one but since my plan was to give it a facelift, full price wasn't something I wanted to be paying.

I can't wait to share it once it is all done getting a makeover - even though my husband I think wanted to cry when I slapped white paint on the cedar exterior. David modified it from its original state (this thing is gigantic) but I am so excited to see this house get loved on. Our yard is tiny but we sure do make the most of it all summer long. So far P has called it...yucky. So we will need to work on that.

Here are some of my inspiration ideas for the new outdoor space for P. I am so excited to see it all come together.


  1. I have no doubt that this playhouse will be better designed & decorated than my current home. Can't wait to see!

  2. So fun! And so many memories to come with that playhouse :)

  3. Basically P's playhouse is going to be better decorated and designed than my actual house.
    I have a code for a light box (10% off I think - different brand) if you're interested in using it, I'll send the code your way!

  4. YAY!!! This is so exciting! I have been begging MC for a playhouse for months - and it finally looks like it may be on the cards for the girls birthdays in April/May. We will have to compare notes x

  5. Oh my gosh this is going to be the cutest space!! I can't wait to see it come together!

  6. so fun! i cant wait to see the finished space! xo jillian - cornflake dreams
