The Pop N Play Castle which I am going to transform into a storybook cottage.
I am transforming this piece to use in place of a banner to advertise this new website at the next Maker Faire Detroit. But this project will also make a delightful, affordable and portable play structure for a little girl.
*Keep the transformation quick, simple and inexpensive
*Don't change anything unless it needs to be changed
*Use the original stone-work lines to create charming cottage stone
*Trim off excess castle style cardboard decorum
*Do not add anything that can't be folded back down and squashed back into the storage box it arrived in
*Glue gothic style cardboard windows in place and paint over it!!
*Add temporary and portable cardboard chandelier
*Add temporary and portable curtains (sheers?)
*Use soft, charming paint colors
Here is what I have done so far
