Indoor Playhouse Reveal!

The Husband has been busy! He finished the new indoor playhouse for our tiny girls and once again, he outdid himself!

This is the second indoor playhouse he’s built for the granddaughters. The first one was  smaller and he constructed it a little differently because he had to build out from the closet.  The first indoor playhouse is posted HERE.

(Building an indoor playhouse inside a closet does not ruin the closet …when we moved recently, we simply took the facade of this playhouse down and put up a bi-fold door, a shelf and hanging rod inside and just like that it was a closet again!)

Remember the first indoor playhouse?

closet playhouseThis time, at the new house, we had a bigger closet but a really different opening…

Because the closet is so big, we didn’t have to build out. I thought a front porch would be cute so of course The Husband made it happen…

He says if you build a closet playhouse, you’ve gotta have a bit of wood working knowledge. Every closet is different so he didn’t write out measurements, but did show his process…

Here are the supplies we got (as usual) from the Home Depot~

Bead-board for the front and bannisters for the porch…

The natural roof line was perfect for an A frame…

We wanted the door to be more cottage and less barn-door like the first playhouse, so he cut an arch…

Cedar shingles and a arched dutch door give it a bit of charm…We used Behr Ultra Paint with Primer – white exterior (because we had some!) and Behr Ultra in Rhino for the door-

I have put in an order for a couple of rocking chairs for the front porch…he says he can make ‘em…

Hartley loves the indoor playhouse!

“Come play!” she says…I can’t wait to show you what The Husband made for the inside!!!

Ellie and I are so excited to decorate their little house for Christmas!

~Sending love my friends~

    What lucky granddaughters you have and amazing husband! Enjoy every moment because my two are 10 and are so busy with school and sports that I don’t get to spend much time with them. While one lives close to me, the other one is 1700 miles away so I enjoy every second I have to spend with them.

    Can’t wait to see the Christmas decorations as that is my favorite time of year! Your projects inspire me!

  12. Non ho mai visto niente di così stupendo!
