This is what I have been up too all weekend.... redecorating the cubby house. Why you ask? Emily (our third) is turning 4 years old. So we thought as a birthday surprise we would do a little revamp of the cubby. Slowly but surely the revamp has turned into a significant project. Materials have been purchased, the sewing machine got pulled out of the cupboard and a weekend was dedicated to the "redecorating of
cubby house" project. We could have named it "Operation Cubby Delight". I thought I would share some images of our cubby renovations!
Pretty curtains to decorate our cubby windows are a must. I found this gorgeous fabric at Patchwork On Central Park (I will chat more about the curtains and Patchwork on Central Park tomorrow.
Open the doors and come inside - we decided to cover the bench and shelf in the cubby with "oil cloth". The bench was rather destroyed from sand and water games played by previous tenants (i.e older brother and sister). We had a small piece of carpet that was left over from when we carpeted our house some time back and after a little trim fitted perfectly inside.
A butterfly mobile strung across the roof of the cubby - I used a variety of fabrics and felt to cutout butterfly shapes and attached them to a white rik rak which we then strung up. We had purchased these star shaped lights a couple of years ago during a post-christmas sale. They are perfect as they are battery-operated. I will do a blog on the butterfly mobile and how to create one tomorrow.
A pretty little apron for the maiden of the cubby - or in our case "princess lollycake" as she likes to be known as.
