Audrey's New House

Last week we got insipred to "build" Audrey a new house. So we stopped by a local appliance store and picked up an old refrigerator box. After a little repair work, "remodeling" (cutting out a window and door), and a few coats of paint that we already had lying around she had her new house.

We finished it off by adding a mail slot (pretend there is a slot cut there, for some reason I took the photo right before we cut the slot), some "carpet" (an old blanket), a light hanging from the ceiling, and a few pictures. She specifically requested a "cow", an "eep" (sheep), and "Mama, Dada".

She definitely loves the house and plays in it all the time. And I love it because it keeps her entertained and cost us nothing to make. That's a win-win if you ask me!


  1. What a fun idea! We will have to make Pearl one of these when she gets a little older.

  2. ADORABLE! That is perfect for this age...
