My awesome parents!

I might be a little biased but I think I have the best parents in the world!! Surely you remember the Repurposed TV Cabinet that Mum & Dad turned into a Play Kitchen for my little girl (If you haven't seen it you just have to click HERE to check it out)... well they have been at it again!
My sister, Carley, turned 30 just the other day. After her surprise party I planned HERE Carley and her hubby took a weeks holiday kid free as a special birthday treat so my gorgeous parents babysat Carley's 3 kids. This mini holiday had been booked in for some time and with a whole week of being around Mum & Dad decided they would build Carley's kids a cubby house while they were babysitting.

In the early stages of designing the cubby house mum decided it would be a 'Shop' so we have been collecting old food containers to stock the shelves


Dad made a 'checkout' bench inside the cubby & Mum found a wooden toy cash register & mini trolley on ebay for a bargain


They even had a shop sign made to hang above the door way


I made some oilcloth bunting to match the signage colours to hang around the front of the roof


And Dad made a pretend petrol bowser with a real petrol nozzle he found (I think the petrol bowser is my nephews favorite bit!


There is hours, days, weeks, months - YEARS of fun to be had in this new cubby!!.... I have put in an order for one at our house now :)

Fabulous. We are getting a cubby for our daughters and I would love to know how the shelving was done and that sign. Such great ideas.
