Playhouse Outside is Finished!!!

Yup, that’s right you heard me … Finished! (with the outside that is)

This was where I ended my playhouse update.

I kept looking at the cedar shakes and knew I did not like the look of the way I had put them up, so I took my trusty crowbar and delicately pried them off. It was actually not that hard getting them off again and I knew I had to redesign the pattern of the shakes before I went on, as it would bother me every time I looked at it!

I added a door knocker and small wreath to the top door …

I added a window box and placed some winter greens and berries in to match the wreath …

Every home needs a porch light …

I also added a glass door handle and a porch but do not have a close up pics of them at this time. I will have to share that later. And the final touch was staining a piece of wood and naming the play house. I called it this, as I always tell Miss Precious a made up story and it always starts with … Once upon a time … I want this to be a special place where she can let her imagination grow!

I drilled holes on the sides and strung twine in the holes, tied knots, and then hung it on the front of the play house.

Ok, I am ready for my BIG reveal! This is the finished product, minus a couple of touch ups to paint.

I will tell you hints on what I would have done differently when I am done with the inside. Stay tuned and have a great holiday season,

Hugs,
“Joy”

    This is amazing! We are doing something similar. How did you attach the cedar shingles to the drywall?
