Ideas For A Child’s Playhouse and Fairy Garden

I am so excited to be able to share with you Baby’s finished garden and playhouse.  This project has been months in the planning and execution, as it is hard to crack on with a task, when we have Baby to contend with.  Together with my mum, hubby and I bought her the playhouse for Christmas.  After LOTS of painting it is all finished and I am so happy that she can now enjoy her own safe play space (without the company of our little furry friends!).  I will do another post to share what we did and where we got things from, but I just wanted to show you the fruits of our labour.

 

So here is a picture tour.  There are LOTS of pictures, as I have waited ages for this!

 

Playhouse

 

The playhouse was unpainted when it arrived flatpacked, until I waved my own special fairy wand!  Our lovely brother in law made us the picket fence, which makes the garden totally secure and safe.  As we have just had our living room floor replaced, we used our old wood floor in her playhouse!

 

Playhouse 1

 

Our garden is quite a sunny little spot, so we picked up this gazebo to ensure Baby has shade.

 

PLayhouse 2 Playhouse 4 Playhouse 5

 

It has a lovely platform area, which apparently is perfect for milk drinking.

 

PLayhouse 6

 

She adores her little house and will happily stand there for ages playing peek-a-boo from behind the door.  She knows it is her special house and wanders about moving things to where she wants them.  I have had such joy creating this space for her and I can’t wait to invite her little friends to see it too.  (I still have to cover the sponge, a piece of our old memory foam mattress, which covers the platform, but everything else is in place).

 

Garden

 

She loves her garden so much and it was such a special moment, when she first played in it properly, her own little space.  I can now let her play outside, without worrying and she can have a little more freedom to explore.  I have filled her garden with lots things that are attractive to children, however, we did plant Daddy some herbs in her little wheelbarrow!

    That is absolutely adorable! How much did it all cost?

    • You Baby Me Mummy

      No idea of the total. But the house was £350 (we paid half). Most of the other bits were 2nd hand, in sales or were gifts. x

    oh.my.goodness!!!! That is absolutely amazing! There must be a competition for best playhouse you can enter that into? It puts our playhouse to shame! But has inspired me to sort it out, although it won’t come close to that. I love it!

    Gorgeous 🙂 I can imagine how much fun you’ve had shopping for accessories! We have 2 sheds at our new house so I’ve decided to turn one into a playhouse for the girls. I can’t wait to get it painted and start filling it with their stuff 🙂

    Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh it’s absolutely BEAUTIFUL Aby you did such a good job. We have been wanting to undertake a playhouse project for Mads and LL for ages and just haven’t got round to it yet. Looking at this makes me think we need to do it- it’s just adorable and I am sure Baby will have hours and hours of fun with it. x

    Hi, I stumbled across this post while I was looking for inspiration for a playhouse I am getting my little boy for Christmas. This house is stunning! What a lucky little girl 🙂

    I hope you don’t mind me asking but is this the Mad dash pear drop playhouse from Garden Buildings Direct? This is the exact one I am wanting (double storey and window shutters have me sold!) but I’ve read some not great reviews of the company x

    • You Baby Me Mummy

      Yes I am sure that’s where we got it from. We had no issues x
