We got a huge cardboard box in the mail a few weeks ago that contained an ottoman for a client. Normally I would have just thrown it away, but I saw how much fun my daughter was having with it and decided to turn it into a playhouse, why not?
So the next day, I whipped out all my leftover paint from various projects and got to work. I decided on pink for the main color of the outside, because I always wanted a pink house when I was younger. I guess I'll just be living vicariously through my daughter on that one. I could have very easily gotten carried away with this project. I had grand plans of wallpaper, window boxes, curtains, rugs...and then I had to remind myself it's just a cardboard box, so I stopped at painting the outside.
Here it is at my parents house where we had my daughter's first birthday. It was a hit with all the kids. Pardon the poor lighting it was a dreary day outside.
The address was 143 (I love you)
