Under the Stairs Playhouse Update

I was able to really spend some time downstairs in our basement working on the playhouse today. I have a hard time stopping on things that interest me so now it is almost midnight again! 🙂 I will have to make this update quick as I work tomorrow. (I have to earn money to pay for my projects)

So, this is where I started …

I cut out the door and window. (No turning back now!)

I  did the framing of the window and door and outlined the house with the shape that I envisioned…

But decided to make a few changes as it was starting to look more like a stable than I wanted it too. LOL, that is so funny that I think that now because at the time I thought it was great! I decided that I would paint the wood so this is where the update starts.

In order to paint and then add the cedar shakes I took off the porch but will add on a different version than the one that was shown previous. I added the tree and decoration to help me feel as if 1/2 of the outside was done. It kind of is 🙂 I sure hope I can get it done before Christmas Eve!!!!

    LOVE it! I’m so in love with the half door and the functional shutters and the shingling… It’s going to be great. I hope your playhouse gets played in. Ours just ended up being a really cute storage closet! LOL
