FO Friday: Playhouse Makeover

It feels a little fraudulent to show this for "FO Friday" as (a) it was finished ages ago and (b) my mum did at least as much work on it as I did (we let the kids paint the back, but fought over the rest). Nevertheless it is finished and I'm showing you on a Friday. Back in August 2012 I posted that I'd bought an old playhouse from a neighbour. It had been sat in her garden, full of old toys, and she wanted it gone. Of course it gave us the perfect excuse for a makeover. (EDIT: The original photo has vanished!)

I have some fabric put aside to make curtains and matching cushion covers but the house itself is finished and Little Miss has claimed it as her own, adding fresh flowers from the garden, pictures she has drawn (we need to find some frames) and a collection of her little things on the shelves. Archie loves hanging out there too.

The weather is so glorious it's getting a lot of use at the moment - I might actually blow the dust off my sewing machine at the weekend!


  1. What a cool playhouse. It's perfecto for them.

  2. Aww! that reminds me of a playhouse that my daughter used to have. All I did was paint the window frames green. You have a lot more imagination.

  3. It's wonderful, I'd love a grown up sized one!
