Let's playyyyyyyyy!

While waiting the longest wait of our entire lives - the wait for little Slick, we put operation build the playroom of our dreams into motion. 

Years ago, I dreamed of having an indoor tree house in our bonus room as it overlooks the woods and trees behind our house. I was hesitant at first to tell others and even Mr. Slick as I was sure they would think I was crazy, but surprisingly he was on board. 

We started with painting (see previous posts for pics) and then by putting on this awesome decal!

Then we started building. And by we, I mean Mr.Slick and FIL while I supervised :)

And then some more building.

And then a few more touches were added. 

IT'S HERE! It's finally here! 

And the final product - notice the awesome rock pillows below the tree house!

I cannot WAIT for little Slick to be here and play in their new awesome playroom! 

Tree decal - $85.00
Slide - $110.00
Wood - $35.00 (most of the wood used was from pallets that were free!!)
Paint - $21.00 (all we needed was sample sizes for the tree house)

The table was our old coffee table and the chairs were a free find from the dump - don't worry they have been thoroughly sanitized! Even the curtain rod is repurposed - it used to have clear "girly" ends on them, so the ends were painted. Everything else is just odds and ends we've picked up over the last 3ish years or were ours from childhood. I can't believe we did pretty much all of this for under $300!

And for the record, the slide works...I've tested it :)


  1. That is so awesome! You can come build me a playroom ;] Haha.

  3. That is awesome!! Little Slick will love that room!

  4. Amazing!! Your kid is going to love that!
