It's Finally Done!

Here is the finished playhouse. There are a few more details that will be added such as the mailbox (you can see the post to the left of the house), a chandelier, a rug and curtains. But the big time construction and painting is finally at a close. Now on to a bit of relaxation for the last two weeks of summer.

Continuing on the Playhouse

We are working like beavers to finish the playhouse this weekend. Dave put on the siding last week while Miss Elsie and myself were visiting the Grandparents on the farm. Today we primed the house, inside and out, and put on two coats of the robin's egg blue interior. It looks something like a pool house without the exterior color. Hopefully by this time tomorrow night, the little house will have all it's color and accessories on. Stay tuned....

Trunk Show Update

The trunk show was a success! I didn't have quite as many people as I would have liked, but I still sold a fair amount of product. I will be taking the remaining pieces to Last Thursday on Alberta Street on Aug 25. I'm not sure where I will be setting up yet. I will post that information closer to the date. For now here is a picture of the garden at Digs inside and out. It is really a lovely place for an event.

I did learn that I need my own sandwich board to put out at events like this... and it would probably be a good idea to run an ad in the paper.... live and learn.

Patache Trunk Show

This Saturday, my dear friend Jen is hosting a trunk show for me at her shop Digs inside and out. My blog will be rather quiet for the rest of the week while I get ready. Here is the flyer:

Playhouse update

After working all weekend, we have the steps finished and all the trim on. It doesn't look like we did all that much for the amount of time we worked... but we now have all the fine detail stuff done... so it's on to the siding! We will be using a 2" beadboard style siding that our neighbor removed from his porch roof. Old growth fir, so the pieces are incredibly long. It should make a lovely little house when we are finished.
