More on the Playhouse - and a little extra

On August 8, we began to paint!

August 9 - Yes, there was often paint in the hair . . .

By August 11, there was "whitewash" on all the walls...

...with paint going up to the top on one side!

On August 13, the petunias were all planted and the whitewash was everywhere!
(1st coat finished)

August 13
Grandpa cut decorative shutters and a sign board.
Each of the girls painted a pair of shutters while little brother painted the sign board.
(Daddy's ladder became a little more colorful!)

The loft ladder steps were also painted!

August 15 - the nearly finished product!
The playhouse now has two complete coats of paint.
The shutters and sign are up.
And We Are Happy!

Now... back to the off-gardening subject. Do you ever watch the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) Television? Have you ever heard of Sid the Science Kid? What might this have to do with Grandparent's Day?

Continue to Check Back! There will be a special post on September 1.

What a wonderful playhouse, thanks for posting the details. Love the coloured steps. Yes, we are very familiar with Sid the Science kid, I really like his 'I love my mom (uh huh) my mom is cool' song. LOL.

Hiya Shady,
They are going to remember that all their lives: helping with that little house. Love the coloured treads on the ladder. And don't the children look sweet.

Hi Rebecca, Thanks for your comments. :-)

Jo, I hope you're right. We had a great two weeks - what with this and all the other events and projects!

Things are progressing, and looking good. The painting looks fun. I like the colors that you chose!

Hi Rosey, Thanks!

Sue - Don't I wish I lived so much closer, so we could do some MORE decorating?? :-)
