Playhouse Prettified

When does cleaning
seem like playing?
Well, if YOU feel that way
then you need a
I head off to play work
with the tools of trade.
Mrs.Meyers cleaner-
AND my

I seriously LOVE that steam mop.
I mean-LOVE IT!
It does such a good job
of deep cleaning floors.

So...wondering what I got done?
I cleaned the windows.
Can you believe they have
leaded glass windows in the 
They do!
We used to own/operate a 
Window/Siding/Door company.
These were some of the
Salesmans' samples.
The perfect size for a playhouse.

I wanted to add that the playhouse
is a good size.
It is about 10' x 12' and
is about 15' at the peak.
There is an upper area inside
that holds a twin sized mattress.
We don't let the kids go up there
yet because of their ages,
but soon they will be old enough
to do that without fear
that they will take a fall.

The rugs are all washed
and the furniture is back 
in place.
Everything in here was found
at a thrift shop.
Child size wicker settee-
was brown- I spray painted it white.
A matching chair...
Brooms and dusters for 
stand beside the "hutch".
I plan to paint the bottom
to match the top soon.
Here is the sweet little top..
A small wicker table
with a tablecloth my 
Mother embroidered many years ago.
A chandelier to add a bit of bling.
And....the most important part
of it all is coming up here tomorrow.
Pack your bags cuz you
can stay here cheap!
See what I mean?
Pop by tomorrow for your
morning smile!
I'll show you the 
Princess Brigade.

  30. OMG your little playhouse is so sweet!

  37. It was my dream as a little girl to have a playhouse like that. I never got one but certainly didn't have anything to complain about during my childhood. Anyway, I'm so glad you have this adorable one to make the dreams of your grand-girlies come true!

  40. that is amazing ! Love it all
    my three yr old g- d would love it a lot. She is a pink loving princess. Right now she is suffering through hives and painful ones due to a bad reaction to antibiotic taken for an ear infection. Her poor mom is up with her all night keeping her calm. they are giving her benadryl and steroids

  41. Diana....I sent you my email so hope we connect. Wondering about the verification:(

  42. Oh that is adorable, what lucky girls, I would have died and went to heaven to have a play house like that!


  43. Diana
    It would be a treat to clean that sweet house! I bet the Princesses
    will have so much fun making memories in their little playhouse.

  44. What a dream! I would love to hang out in the playhouse. It's so pretty!

  45. what a beautiful play house!I want to live there! I was lucky to get a little 6x6 shed that I am going to transform into a play house...I don't have grandchildren yet but my oldest is getting married soon so I'm sure it's not far away! I'll bet your granddaughters have a blast in their house!!!

  46. What a cute little playhouse! Make my reservation to be your first Bed and Breakfast guest!:)

  47. How perfect! I can only imagine the joy the girls will have in this adorable little house. Would have killed for one of these when I was young...killed a fly or mosquito perhaps? :-)


  48. How perfect! I can only imagine the joy the girls will have in this adorable little house. Would have killed for one of these when I was young...killed a fly or mosquito perhaps? :-)


  49. Do you think there is room for one big (little) child at heart? I could move right in! I promise not to fall from the loft. We had a playhouse at our previous home. Was planning on building one here next year. Thinking I might make it a potting shed instead. Oh, will the grandies ever forgive me? I will have to a least put a small table and cupboard in there. Yours is just precious.

  50. The playhouse is darling. I love every little detail you have added. I can bet the grands just love playing in there. I know I would. ;) Thanks so much for the tour.


  51. When I was growing up the little neighbor girl had a little playhouse......her father was a home builder so it was very well built....but certainly didn't have the charm of yours.....I'd have adored this as a little girl....


  52. A playhouse fit for your princesses. So cute with the wicker furniture and the beautiful floral pillows. What a wonderful treasure for making childhood memories.

  53. I've never seen a playhouse as charming as this one! It's every little girls dream and I love the chandelier!
