A CREATIVE Scottish mom decided to turn the space under the stairs into an amazing playhouse for her young daughter.

Karen Adamson from Midlothian made a girls’ haunt that looked like a miniature house for three-year-old Holly.

The best part of the project is that it was made for under £ 100 using cheap products from B&M, Amazon and B&Q.

The exterior of the playhouse was designed to resemble a small house, with a cutout window and a front door with a knocker.

Inside was everything a young child could possibly need, from a sofa to a toy kitchen and a washing machine.

Speaking to Tyla, Karen said she built the entire gambling den in just one afternoon and one evening.

She said: “I did the project on a Sunday afternoon with my partner Kevan, it was 3pm when we started so it was late at night to make sure it was ready for. the early morning of the next day.

“We cut a hole for the window, lined it with MDF and used a plinth for the frame, we also made the cross on the MDF windows. All these materials were from B&Q.”

Then the couple painted the interiors and added brick wallpaper to the exterior to make it look like a house.

All of the paint, wallpaper, and planter were purchased from B&M, and the couple didn’t have to spend any money to get them.

Karen also bought a working doorbell and brass hardware from Amazon, and then hopes to add curtains and a mailbox.

She added: “Holly loves it and likes to pretend to cook dinner for everyone, even though she said ‘but I don’t have a dining room’.”
