We Built This Treehouse On Pinterest And Hope

September 7, 2012

Pinterest treehouse:

Our treehouse:

Look, I think that it’s actually pretty good. It’s really only a roof and windows (and door and lanterns and wee charming deck) off of this Pinterest treehouse, which was the more modest inspiration:

Or not.

The thing is, even though our treehouse isn’t (yet!) on the level of Pinterest’s treehouses, it could be. And it could be, because we started it. If we didn’t have the inspiration in the first place – to say nothing of having a space in which to collect and share the bits of inspiration – we might not have started it. Or rather, I might not have nagged my husband to start it, and giving him detailed specs (like ‘make it really high, like the ones on Pinterest!’ and ‘make more than one level, like the ones on Pinterest!’) and that, my friends, has made all the difference.
You see how this post is on my Intel Digital Life page? That’s because I wrote it with my Intel hat on, which is totally a little foil beanie that receives satellite transmissions from the galaxy of AWESOME. Or something. Anyway, it’s part of the series that you see here, on this humble page, about living la vida digital, which is also part of this whole storytelling exercise over here, on Facebook. You should check it out.

    That looks sweet. My cooking compares to Pinterest food in the same way.

    What a blessing! I always wished for a treehouse.

    Beautiful treehouse! WIsh I had the space and the ability to do something like this. That’s the problem with Pinterest. It is constantly reminding me how inadequate I am in so many ways. Ah well. Back to dreaming of building castles in trees! :)
