A Playhouse Under the Table

“The colorful and exciting designs playhouse can brighten up toddler rooms and personalize interior decorating. Though we love to have them in our kids room, our budget will restrict us from doing so. Well, for creative moms out there, here’s an idea that you’ll surely love. Presenting a DIY playhouse under the table.”

 

DIY Kids Playhouse under the Table

As some of you know, I recently sorted through my piles of fabric and in-progress sewing projects and counted a whopping 26 unfinished projects! So of course I had to start a brand new one—this lovely (if I do say so myself) playhouse for Maia and Daphne. At least I used fabric from my existing stash.

We’re always draping sheets and tablecloths over tables and chairs to create forts and playhouses, so I thought I’d create a semi-permanent indoor playhouse for the kids to use this winter. I used a dining table as the frame and sewed the playhouse to fit. I completely winged it, but I think it turned out well. I know I’ve seen this idea before—probably in a Pottery Barn Kids catalog for $200—so it’s not new. But it’s new to us and Maia and Daphne love it.

Here are a few pics:

The door is just a slit in the fabric, edged with quilt binding, with ties to hold it open, tent style.

I meant to edge the window panes with bias tape, but didn’t have enough on hand, so just used a zigzag stitch for now and will (maybe) edge it later. As you can see, the window will probably get pulled out of shape quickly.
