Have spent the weekend ripping out the kids summerhouse and decorating it for Poppy. My youngest has sold his Playmobil to pay for his bunnies new home (and he chose the colour scheme:shock:lol)

He has called it 'Poppy's Palace:D'

Just got the run to stain tomorrowhttp://i907.photobucket.com/albums/ac275/Kye0001/may%202011/may2011020.jpg

Now that she has got her new home I am going to take my youngest to the local RSPCA on Wednesday to have a look at the bunnies needing homes so that Poppy can have a friend:love:

:love: Thats really pretty, did you use an ordinary emulsion on the inside of the shed ? I've not seen a timber preservative in pink, I'd like to paint the ply inside my shed a nice colour but wasn't sure if it was safe, they can't chew the ply as it is flush, what did you use? P/S Poppy is lovely too :)

I mixed the Wilkinsons cream shed paint (pet safe) with a blob of rich berry (cuprinol garden shades tester pot:D).

If you have a look on the cuprinol site they suggest using jasmine (something or other! lol) and the berry one to make pink. I couldnt get the jasmine so took a gamble on cream:p It took quite a few coats though:oops:

Oh OK will do thankyou thats great. :D I've got the sea greeny colour on the outside, when I did that last year there wasn't much choice really in the shades range so they've obviously expanded it, I will definately do that, the inside of my shed looks gloomy compared to yours it's in need of a 60 minute makeover, I'm sure the relaxed ambience will all assist to have a nice happy couple living there although, you know your going to have to completely neutralise it before the new one comes with white vinegar and make it a bit different, Poppy is likely to have made herself at home and I don't blame her, she might get territorial.

She's his bunny, he saw her in p@h and asked to rescue her. She had been a stray and then a house bunny but she chewed through wires and was electrocuted:shock: He is away at camp this weekend so hasnt seen it all yet....I really hope he likes it:D

I have finished painting the run and its taken Poppy a few days to pluck up the courage to use the cat flap:roll: Finally we had a breakthrough today and she's had a great day in and out of her summerhouse:p

Here it is finished on the outside now as well as inside:D

The ramps were the old ones from when we had guinea pigs, they had got put behind the shed and when Poppy came I found them:D Think the ex made them from ply and beading:D
