Tea Cup Cottage

The girls have been wanting a playhouse for a while.  Always one to find a cheap and cheerful way to do something, I bought a second-hand pine wendyhouse on ebay and spent a very happy Saturday painting it and decorating it to the girls' exacting standards!  The exterior is Farrow & Ball 'Old White', with home-made window boxes and plastic box balls from the local pound store.  The inside is pink (of course) with the obligatory bunting, and I handpainted the name of the cottage over the door.  The windows were stencilled to create glazing bars, with curtains and a dark grey painted floor to finish.  Total cost all in?  Less than £200.  And two very happy customers.
