When it comes to my Mom - my Dad gives the best gifts. He's very thoughtful, he listens to her, and he creates masterpieces.
This year I think he has outdid himself. I don't know how he will ever top this gift! Unless I get one too!
He built Mom the most darling playhouse - equipped with wait for it - electricity too! She'll be searching for the perfect vintage fixture ASAP.
We chose pink because she always wanted to paint her farmhouse pink with green & cream trim when we were little. We thought it was perfect for a playhouse! Isn't the scalloped trim detailing the cutest! He still has window boxes & shutters in the works, but time ran out! This was a 2 week project that involved son in laws. They did a great job & now they know how to build them for their wives!! Hint hint!
We painted the inside a shade of turquoise & Dad laid old vinyl flooring down - it's fabulous too and perfectly my Mom! The porch ceiling & inside ceiling are a lighter shade of turquoise - something she has always loved as well!
Aubrie was thrilled & honestly has kept this secret for 2 whole weeks - pretty impressive I'd say!
Seriously it's so stinking cute! now Dad just has to get it out of the machine shed with a tractor & into the back yard! I'd bet he does this tomorrow while the ground is still frozen. I know Mom is dying to decorate the porch & inside and has big plans for the grand kids in this baby!
She was so excited. I think she knew he was building her a shed, most likely a playhouse, but I don't think in her wildest dreams she thought he'd come up with all of this!!
