Old shed made into new PLAYHOUSE!

I should have taken some “before” pictures, but it was just too gross. I cropped this from a picture we took of the snowy yard last year. Many gallons of paint, a little bit of carpentry, and many hours of naptime over the past months have been spent on this project.

I left some hints in earlier posts at what we had transformed it into. I think it is nothing short of miraculous! How many kids have wrap around porches?

There is still lots left to do, but I have been dying to blog about it and I think we got to a pretty good point this week. Shutters and a door to keep the leaves and rain out is next on my list.



That dead stuff hanging in the corner is some lavender from the garden, I wish it looked as good as it smells.  That bench will eventually get some pillows…

Petunia even comes for visits. She would never step paw in here when it was a shed full of  junk. She has good taste.

The furniture and the tea set came from my mom and it works perfectly. Here the proud homeowner is being very patient with this photo shoot, but really wanting me to sit with her for tea.

She has gotten quite good at serving tea. Slurping noises included.

  4. I am at a loss for words – it is like a fantasy-land childhood nobody — will ever believe her when she grows up and tells them.
