Playhouse Accessories

I bought the bird house at Michael’s. I was so happy when I saw it, because it was the perfect detail I was looking to include outside the Playhouse. The house is made of wood so the possibilities are unlimited! You can also find cabins, brownstones, cottages, lighthouses and more ! 

Planter

Don’t ask me where I bought the planter, I made it ! And it was surprisingly easy to make with all the wood we had left from the basement renovation. I took the measurements, cut, glued and nail-gunned the pieces together. Then I fixed the tiny holes with this magical patch kit! A life saver!! Once it’s completely dry, the pink color fades and you can sand and paint !

For the planter’s grass, I used a wet foam brick from A.C. Moore and for the plants, I used this artificial potted plant from IKEA. Damn, it took me a while to get them out!!!, but it was definitely worth it! . 

I needed the door to be lightweight …. So I chose this door from Home Depot. The difficulty was to cut it to make a Dutch door and fill the gaps to make a new (even) structure with pieces of wood.

I used that patch kit again… and then sanded and painted it.

BUT I did it!! It’s not perfect, but I managed to create what I had in mind!

For the decoration of the door, I used this carved moulding to create a frame on each side. Then, I painted it with Rust-Oleum Pure Gold Spray.

I purchased the brass envelope on Amazon, but it’s unfortunately no longer available. However, Target has a similar one.

I purchased the key stencils on Amazon, the wood heart plaque at AC Moore and the stars and script wooden words at Michael’s.

Inside Decoration

For the chalkboard, I created a frame using this solid pine trim with Ivy league design. And painted the inside with Rust-Oleum chalkboard paint.

For the magnetic wall, I used Rust-Oleum magnetic paint. Be ready to apply a few coats and don’t forget to wear gloves and a mask! This paint is toxic during application.

You’ll also need to follow the instructions carefully and stir a great amount of times during applications.

Lighting

Cotton balls (Battery Operated)

Those cotton balls are absolutely adorable! They give a very warm atmosphere inside the playhouse!

Puck Light (3-Pack, Battery Operated)

You can either attach them with the provided adhesive tape or you can drill holes!

It’s super convenient and the light is very bright!

Mirror

This is the Drommare from IKEA. With a self-adhesive backing, you won’t need to drill holes on your wall! It’s made of impact resistant soft plastic, so it’s safe for little ones.

Wood Frames

They are from Michael’s. I feel like the Mix & Match of the Oval and the Rectangular one was the right decision!

I painted behind with magnetic paint, and created personalized photo magnets on Shutterfly. My daughter loves them and keep changing the pictures in the frames!
