When I was a young girl, my Mom converted her glass greenhouse into a garden playhouse for me. Nestled among the roses and butterfly bushes, I had this magical dreamy world all my own where I could play dress-up, draw, read, or just hang out with my friends. It was the best! Somehow all my dollies, stuffies and cookie tins ended up under the sofa. My great-aunt’s old furniture would be repurposed after some sanding and a new coat of paint. Looking back now, I can see my love for shabby chic was forged in my little playhouse. Decorating for children always allows for a playful, whimsical side of my personality to shine. I wanted to create a tribute to a my childhood playhouse using exclusive items from SL Home & Garden Expo 2014 from Persnickity, Thaino Designs, Dreamscapes Art Gallery*, Serenity Styles (gacha), Shabby Tabby*, Dekute Dekore* (part of the Story Time set), NACH*, R(S)W Home & Garden, La Vieux Carre, and EDD Homes & Garden. You can easily use the items in a child’s bedroom, study, reading nook, or a grown up living space. Rethinking the Persnickity garden shed as an additional living space will guarantee to add interest to your homestead, spark creativity and conversation. Happy shopping!
