Show Us What You're Workin' With #27!!

HOWDY YA'LL!!! I'm excited for this weeks party because I want to show you what my latest project is :)

We've all seen those DARLING little card table play houses, right??!! If you haven't, skee-daddle on over to ETSY and do a search and you will FALL-IN-LOVE!! I've always wanted to make Bucket one (buying them from someone else is rather pricey) but I knew it would be very time consuming, hence the high pricetag. Anyhoo, I shoved the idea to the back of the brain, that is until recently. I got to thinking about Christmas and how it's going to be here before I know it . . . BLAR!! And I don't want to be running around like an even CRAZIER THAN NORMAL lady the week before trying to get all of his gifts ready. So, the back of my brain told the front of my brain to make him a playhouse!! I wanted it to be bigger than a card table size because I want him to be able to use it for years to come, have sleepovers in it with his cousins and basically not outgrow it in 2 years :) So, we busted out some PVC pipe and set to work. I'm not going to bore you with the supplies, unless you are interested in making one, so I'll just show you the pictures. The frame is ready to go, now I just have to start with the sewing and all that jazz!!!


Pretty sweet right? Its about 4 x 5 x 6 (at the point of the roof)


The roof is actually a separate piece that will be tied to the base. We had to do it this way because they don't make the necessary PVC joint pieces to give us the correct angles.

So far so good, right? I have a long ways to go and I'll be sure to show pictures of my progress!!

NOW LET'S PARTY!!!

  5. When we made my daughters tent we tried to figure out how to make the top like that and we came to the same conclusion as you. I actually had to stop and read really close to see how you made the top. Thanks for sharing
