We knew we wanted to give Nolie some kind of “big sister gift” and what is better than a place to escape to that is all your own when that baby sister is too much?
Enter: the playhouse.
I asked Charlie how much it would cost to build a play house… we hemmed and hawed over some online ideas and expensive costs and then decided to be creative. This home was made for a total of $ 9.75
All wood is reclaimed (mainly pallet and some from a worksite at Charlie’s work)- $0
The paint was bought on clearance for $5
I had Chalk board paint on hand $0
We got the pail at the Dollar store last year $0
The switch box was $3.25
and each switch was $.50
Here is the process….
This will be there perfect escape for Nolie and her comrades this summertime. And once I put our some chairs for the mamas this will be a perfect break for everyone! I should take another picture of it now… big wheel parked outside, chalk drawings on the walls and a smiling happy girl who is overwhelmingly happy with her “big sisser gift!”
