backyard playhouse

I can't remember when I didn't want a playhouse, when I was small a blanket under a tree, or a blanket draped over chairs would do. Well now I have one, I saved my pennies ( dollars really) and bought one. It is a nice size 8' by 14', big enough for an art studio, or a charming get away for reading, or just a little retreat for tea and crumpets.
I had a hard time deciding what color to paint, should I be safe and go with white or grey? My heart always trips at pink so I am painting it pink with green trim. The trim will help tie it to the house. I have one more coat of pink and then the trim.
The exciting thing is, that my dear hubby has wired it for electricity, I think I have more plug ins in my lil' house than my bedroom. I even have a chandelier to hang in there, I have been shopping at garage sales for goodies to furnish and decorate, good old garage sales, you can't beat them,and sometimes you find the best things (the chandelier).
Of course everthing takes time, and time is limited and precious for all, so as we insulate, sheetrock and finish the inside I will post our progress.
