Christmas Playhouse

A few months ago I got the idea to make a playhouse for my boys.  If they where girls we'd call it a doll house, but they're boys.  So...it's a play house.

I got lucky and found a naked wood house at a garage sale, so for $20 I brought this baby home.

The house was kind of naked and sad, but I knew that with a little imagination, she'd be just fine.

Inside the naked house (does that sound dirty- it's not meant to be)

1 audio book (Jacob Tomsky's Heads in Beds) , $10 worth of craft paint and a trip to Home Depot and BAM!

Makeover complete
Isn't she homey now!

Now for a peek inside a few of the rooms.


Hand painted peg people and friends enjoy an episode of the Cleveland Show in the living room.




Once the boys got their hands on the house hijinx ensued!

Total cost to make this house = $30
Cost of 20-unpainted peg people = $20
Bringing joy and quiet imaginative play to my household = PRICELESS
