Bakery Playhouse Transformation


I recently scored a playhouse for free from another mom friend. It needed some love to say the least to get it to where they could play in it. I asked my girls what they wanted it to be and they both agreed they wanted a bakery. So I sanded it all down, did a whole lot of painting and gave it some pretty whimsical little touches. My mom sewed up custom aprons, oven mitts and curtains from tablecloths I found at Target. I made a mini whisk chandelier, door mat, recipe holder from an old strawberry container & even a matching mailbox. My husband built a small oven to go under the counter. All paint & supplies came from The Home Depot. We added a floor out of plywood I sanded down and painted a light lavender with some glitter to it to make it sparkle. Once it was complete we invited some friends over for a Grand Opening Celebration. It was such a fun project and my girls love it!

Hi! I’d love some more info on how you made the mailbox. It would be perfect for a dance prop that I need to make!
