Mum, 26, reveals how she converted a cubby house into a mini Bunnings Warehouse for her son

A 26-year-old mother has revealed how she converted a cubby house into a miniature Bunnings Warehouse for her two-year-old son.

Emma Murray, from Newcastle in New South Wales, said she spent around $300 transforming the Bunnings buy into the warehouse of her son Harry’s dreams.

‘We are at Bunnings almost daily after buying our first home and Harry is obsessed with it, so it makes sense that he can have this mini Bunnings Warehouse of his own,’ Emma told FEMAIL.

‘I spent $199 on the cubby itself and then just $100 on the paint and brushes. The project took about one week on and off where we painted it prior to assembly.’

To make the Bunnings cubby, Emma said she first bought the home for $199, along with $100 worth of paint and brushes.

‘I hand drew on the hammer logo and the “Harry’s Warehouse” logo, as well as the “Garden Centre” sign,’ she said.

They then painted all of the various parts different colours, including the classic Bunnings Warehouse green and red. 

‘We plan to add some flowers into the window planter box to make it even cuter,’ she said.

‘But Harry loves it – he can’t stop playing in there.’

‘This is the best cubby glow up I’ve seen including mine,’ another added.

A third wrote: ‘As a team member that works at Bunnings, that is truly awesome’.

This isn’t the first cubby house hack to go viral.

Hundreds of devoted parents across Australia have turned the $199 buy into their child’s dream home. 

Earlier this year, ‘devoted dog mum’ transformed two Kmart cubby homes into an epic outdoor shelter for her beloved pets. 

Jessica Breen was keen to treat her ‘fur babies’, golden retriever Dorothy and border collie Martha, to a warm, dry place to sleep outside. 

The animal lover from Brisbane, Queensland, decorated two $250 Kmart cubby houses typically used as children’s play areas with accessories from brands like Bunnings and Spotlight to give the pups the space they deserve.
