My 3 K's Kottage Reveal

19 years ago our little family
Moved into my current home
In the backyard at that time was this little playhouse
In those 19 years
It has served as a fort, club house, and
playroom for the boys and their electronic games
More recently it has served as a storage shed

This old place has seen better days
But I truly have wanted to allow my granddaughters to play in there
In just over 3 years
All of my grands will be in school
And I won't get to spend as much time with them as I do now

So, I began to plan
Gave myself a $100.00 budget
And got to work 
Turning this old shed

Into This Cute little Kottage for my K's

I searched for just the right 'stuff'
At garage sales, thrift stores, and antique marts
Then just let it all come together

Because I have added an abundance of photos
I will just let them speak for themselves

I must add here
I pulled out my petticoat from my wedding
(size 4 - haha - 33 years ago)
And decided to use it to make some simple curtains for the windows

They aren't perfect
But it is a special little touch that makes me smile

I'll say that it was a lot of work
And I spent many hours painting and preparing
But I personally think it turned out SO cute
And the girlies just love playing in there

I can't wait until all my K's 
As well as my sister's grands
Come over and just play 

I believe there will be many hours of
Using their imaginations creatively with
Play-doh, crayolas, scissors, markers 
Cooking, playing house and school
Just plain old fashioned fun times

NO Electronics Allowed :)

I hope you've enjoyed the photos
I sure enjoyed putting this little Kottage together

And Now I am going to go eat 
Strawberry Shortcake for dinner!!
