We inherited this cubby when we bought our home. It has been well used with lots of sweet, little handprints and drawings inside.
A few nails to straighten up the floor and wall boards and a good sanding was needed before painting.
We decided on Taubmans Caribbean Green to brighten it up. It’s a great colour for interiors and exteriors… so if you’re looking to freshen up a space, we highly recommend this calming seascape green. It contrasts well with a bright white.
Two coats later the cubby was starting to exude some sophisticated toddler clubhouse vibes.
Astro turf, colourful plants and planter boxes from Bunnings and a garden gnome completed the look.
A pair of rabbit ornaments from Papaya Homewares
Two Sandpits from Target for $59 each combined to make one larger one (it’s not built with the specific ability to join together, but with a few extra screws, it’s pretty easy to do so).
So for a little under $200, we’ve recreated a sad and discarded space into a blissful kids zone. Every day since, there have been adventures in this little area with lots of friends.
And we now have a very house proud little toddler who tends to her little cottage and garden every day.
