As a kid, I would make houses and forts out of cardboard boxes, sheets, and the odd chair or two. This DIY playhouse takes a similar approach, albeit much more aesthetically pleasing. You won't have to look at dirty boxes and your kid's imagination can still run wild: win-win!
This minimalist playhouse is made from 1x1s and is super simple to build -- check out the basic instructions over on Scandinavian Deko. Once you have the frame built, you can leave the wood raw or let its pint-sized resident choose the paint color!
