Our Cubby House

Hi everyone.

I hope you have all enjoyed your Christmas break and school holidays. The girls go back to school in a few short days, it was lovely having them home.  I always miss them when they go back.

However 2013 is going to be a very exciting year for me. 

This year we celebrate our 12th year of marriage, my babies turn 7 and 9 and I start my first year of two as a Master of Teaching (Primary) student.  So a very big and exciting year ahead.  

Because I have decided to go back to study my craft time will be a little limited, but I am still hoping to post some craftiness every now and then.

I thought I would stop by today and share with you our completed cubby project.

Here is the exterior painted with Dulux Weathershield Milton Moon and Lexicon White.

Here is the inside of the cubby. Grandma was lovely enough to make some curtains and placemats...very sweet. I made the fabric bunting, not too bad for my first attempt I think.

This is the girls little reading corner and toy box. I made a cushion using the pattern and instructions from here. I didn't stuff the pillows too much, but I think they need a bit more stuffing now.

Remember the second hand entertainment unit we bought to convert into a kitchen...

well this is how it turned out. My hubby was a great help for this. The girls love it!

The floor has sticky backed tiles on it. My sister and I laid them, they were super easy and I think it looks amazing.  It really lifts the entire room.

So that is a quick tour of the girls cubby.  They love it and it has their little imaginations running wild.

Thank you so much for stopping by.
Have a wonderful 2013.
Take care
