Under the Stairs Playhouse … Inside!
Just when you think you are finished with seeing this Under the Stair Playhouse … I am showing inside pictures!!! A bit of history of this fun project first. I was going to make an outdoor playhouse this past summer but because of time constraints and a fence that needed to be made first, I was not able to get started. Long story short … we had to alter our plans due to easements on our property that were not disclosed at time of sale. I really wanted something for Miss Precious to play in (you know how little ones love a place to have to themselves … kind of like adults, right?!) Because I didn’t want anything out in the way like a tent downstairs I decided to look into something that could be built under the stairs. Of course I wanted to see what other people had done so I might glean some ideas. Pinterest is where I started looking and that is where I found Sawdust and Paperscraps Playhouse. I loved the shake roof and the way it was 3 dementional but I didn’t have that shape of space. I did save it to my DIY folder in case I wanted to go back and check it out again. I found another one on Pinterest that I and thousands of others seem to like as well and it was more like my staircase. You know the rest of the story from this post … Who Needs Sleep Anyway?
So today I went downstairs and took some pics of the Under the Stairs playhouse “Inside” because so many of you were curious to see it.
I took this first pic right before I went in. It is not decorated for Christmas any longer but I have kept the winter theme with the snow shoes, pine boughs, and the cardinal sitting on the covered porch
Come join me inside ….
Because I didn’t want little ones getting stuck under the landing area, I built a built in bookcase to house baskets of toy food, coloring books, toys, and puzzles. I can still get under the stairs if I need too by unscrewing 2 screws on each side. By tucking it under the stair landing I am able to have more space inside that is usable. Gotta’ love that!
The little table I bought from Ikea for only $20.00. I love the light wood and white and what a deal to save me time! The outside of the Playhouse, I wanted rugged and cabin like, but the inside? I wanted it to be the exact opposite. Delicate and girly. Hence the whites and pinks.
The other side of the playhouse houses her kitchen and baby “Harlow”.
My amazing daughter had a cabbage patch kid when she was younger, so I thought it would be fun to pass on that tradition to Miss Precious. If the truth be told, I think I might have bought it for me because as a child I always loved dolls. Fortunately, Miss Precious does too. I think it skipped a generation. Hee Hee.
Mr Man found this for her when I asked him to look around for a frame. Yup, thats right! We are VIKING fans. (We know we suck this year … just hoping we get a good draft pick!)
A clock to help her learn to tell time
Because of the girly factor … I told Miss Precious that I blew Pixie Dust on her ceiling. When the paint was wet, I blew glitter on it. It sparkles and gives it texture.
I hope you en’joy‘ed taking this journey back with me. Hugs and have a great weekend!
