It definitely feels as though we have broken free of Winter, I’m sure I shall regret those words in a few weeks, snow at Easter isn’t unheard of here!
Over the weekend the weather was so lovely I decided to make a start on sorting out the garden, a few months of neglect needed washing, painting and sweeping away.
I also decided that the boys’ playhouse needed a revamp, into a Beach Hut! Living by the sea it just seem the right thing to do, besides, I’m unlikely to own a proper beach hut!
Once we had it settled in its permanent spot, I slapped on a coat of white paint over everything, including the ‘porch’.
I then added some blue stripes.
I wasn’t too fussed at keeping it all neat, besides when you have little boys ‘helping’ the painting manual gets torn up and thrown out the window!
To add to the beach hut feel I made some super quick no sew bunting.
Simply cut out flags.
Using a stapler, attach each flag to bunting tape.
I used my trusty staple gun to attach the bunting to the beach hut.
I’m working on a sign to hang on the front door, so obviously needed to add a hook, this pirate one seemed perfect for the job!
I’m going to be adding some more details to the beach hut over the next week or so, but so far I like what we have done.
I haven’t decided on what to do with the inside, any ideas?
