Expensive taste living on a Walmart budget!

Since our house is still under renovations, and will be for awhile, rainy days have been VERY trying lately! With all attempts to keep the tv off and projects going, this mom has exhausted her resources. I have even gotten desperate enough to have them go swimming in our bath tub. (It’s actually a brilliant idea.)
You know the deal…
2 stir crazy kids=
2 cranky kids=
ONE crazy momma!
So, when I saw these I fell in love with them. I can picture the kids playing in here for hours! Ok, so maybe there would be some fighting going on in it too! AWW, a mommy can dream right? Anyways…

This one is from Haba and costs $200+

and this one is from Land of Nod and costs $99!

I may have great taste, but lets face it, I’m living on a Walmart budget! So I decided to TRY and make my own. With few patterns and no tutorials out there, I came up with my own. Yes it did take many late nights, but I did it!

Here it is!

Total cost $15! (courteousy of four $3 Walmart sheets and one hula hoop!)

Because I am feeling for all those other moms out there living on a Walmart budget with expensive taste, I have created a tutorial and I’m going to share it with you!
Go HERE for the tutorial.
