LITTLE PLAYHOUSES (Part 1)

Two years ago, I spent the whole summer looking all around the web for inspiration because I wanted to build a little play house for my daughter. Play houses are the coolest thing in the world and I would have given anything for having one when I was a kid, so when I finally made one for my child, she loved it, but I loved it more!
After a lot of searching we decided to make a tipi for the garden. I want to write a tutorial on the tipi soon, but meanwhile I’ll show you some of the cutest ideas I found. Since I have got so many adorable huts, I’ll show them to you in two or three posts. (here is the second one) There are some so lovely that I wish I had four houses,  to fill them up with play houses. Now that I have my sewing machine, maybe I make a folding one for the living room, I’ll let you.

Today I’m leaving you some exterior play houses, for gardens or patios, shortly I’ll come with more economical examples, made of cardboard or fabric.

The wooden wagon can be purchased at this Dutch shop, where you have thousands of beautiful things. Take a look at the other play houses, the bunk beds and furniture, you’ll love them all.

I like this one because it reminds me of my childhood movies such as The Goonies or Stand by Me. It can be purchased here, or you can get inspired to make your own one.

Another homemade house, the pity is that in the blog there are not many details on how to build it, so you’ll have to look at the photo and make a guess.
