DIY Children's Playhouse

I've been talking about P's new playhouse ad naseum so it's about time I declare it done and share it. Creating this special space for P has been a lot of fun and doing it together with my husband is a memory I won't soon forget. Our yard feels so nice to hang out in after work and P is just loving the new addition. She literally will run in there and just hang out - painting and playing.

A couple of things about the playhouse since I know you're likely curious! We purchased the playhouse off of Craigslist and on a wet and rainy day, I sent my husband and our friend Zack to pick it up. I should have known when they returned in fits of laughter that something was up. Well turns out the playhouse was rather large - much larger than I anticipated - as in we could stand up inside it!

So David had to do some modifications to it (removed the front porch) and added to the side instead. We painted the whole interior and exterior white (Chantilly Lace by Benjamin Moore) as well as created a dutch door. David even put a knob on it that he bought a long time ago in Anthropologie that he liked because it had abalone in it. Fairly certain he has never gone to Anthro with me again haha.We both aren't fans of the roof but it is functional (it's real!) so we decided not to mess with it. Finishing touch was its own little wind chime.

Lastly we need to add the window box back on and plant some flowers in it! Most sources are listed below but feel free to ask any questions!
