Back in March some friends of ours gave us their old playset. Joey remembers playing with it at their house when he was a kid. And the people who gave it to us got it from their neighbors. So this thing has been around.
I sanded it down a little to try to get rid of the moss. Then I stained it.
And then I closed off the bottom as a playhouse.
One side is a little shop. Usually it’s a ice cream shop. Delilah is sitting at the picnic table I made using reclaimed lumber.
I took the rope ladder apart and made it into a low swing.
Joey’s project- a periscope using pvc pipe and mirrors. Also used as a communication device.
Added a window flower box. I’ll add flowers when it’s not so blooming hot. They would just die in this heat.
My friend Aubrey, rescued these shutters from a little girl’s room renovation. They work perfectly in the house. They are functioning, so that’s a fun element for play.
I’m not sure if I’m going to paint it or not. I still need to make a outdoor fabric canopy. Right now it’s just an outdoor tablecloth. It won’t last much longer. I’m going to add some curtains, too. Then, when it’s all done I need to landscape around it. I’ll keep you updated.
