With Charlie's room being complete, time for a new project, and right now we spend 90% of our evenings outside, except for dinner + bath. Springtime in Iowa is seriously, the best, well except for falls, those can not be beat around here, that's why we're still here, we live for fall. With that aside I know the summers get pretty dang warm here and the humidity feels like it might kill, but evenings are usually better. So now that I'm getting to my point, we are building a playhouse for our girl! Oh and planting our garden.

I'm sharing a little inspiration for this project! And wish me luck I'm going to try to keep it under $400 TOTAL, we have some scrap lumber left from our old deck we torn down & a few pieces that were extra from our new cedar deck + fence. Our plan it to paint it all white, since we're using scrap pieces of wood! Here's some drawings I put together of the outside, I'll have to take some photos of my husband building it, and after we get it complete. I think everything looks better painted white so we'll see! We have the smallest backyard, since our house is on a corner lot we have a fairly big front and side yard, and our "backyard" it only about 15' wide. So we are going to tuck this little playhouse right next to our house.

Wish us luck! This might end up being a couple weekends, but happy memorial day weekend!
