Kids Playhouse Ribbon Cutting Ceremony+ GIANT Giveaway

Playhouse Ribbon Cutting Ceremony

It has come to an end… finally! My husband and I started the kids playhouse plans when our oldest (who turned 4 on Friday) was still in the womb, seriously. While building our home I couldn’t stand to see all the snippets (what most would call garbage) go to the dump or be used as kindling, so I made hubby stash them in our crawl space until one day our youngsters would need a kick-@ss place to escape. Last year we (I mean mostly him and our awesome neighbour) drug the supplies out and built this cute little palace. The playhouse was built to resemble our actual home.

The interior of this playhouse is super cute!

Cute Playhouse with a sitting area and a loft!

Welcome inside, have a sip of tea, relax on the sofa, or sleepover in the loft!

Playhouse Rules

I created this word art with my Silhouette and Xyron, all the fun things I want the playhouse to be.  Instal regular size doors on end of playhouse to use the building for a shed when the children are older The end of the playhouse (which faces the woods) has full length doors. The kids often play with them open when the weather is nice. In the winter we can use the building to store larger items like the lawn mower, bikes, and summer toys. When the kids are grown it can just be used as a shed.

Sofa seating in the playhouse from fynesdesigns.com

I added some cushion and reupholstered the foot stool to make a sofa. The curtains I made with thrift store fabric and added cute ribbon details with May Arts Ric-Rac and yellow chevron twill.

Have Fun ribbon wreath fynesdesigns.com

The ‘have fun’ wreath was made with a collection of May Arts Grosgrain polka dot ribbons. Cute and simple, and easy to make!

Have a spot of tea in my playhouse would you?!

I picked up this end table at a thrift shop for $3! The blue chair was my husbands when he was small.

Simple playhouse kitchen

I snagged the chalkboard for $2. Isn’t that vintage Tupperware set the cutest? I made the bunting from scrap fabric, May Arts Ric-Rac, and a few scraps of May Arts twill (blue twill below too).

Kid cave in the playhouse

Come on upstairs into the Kid Cave. This is where we can have sleepovers and put the babies for a rest.
