Playhouse Makeover

We did it! We FINALLY gave this sad little playhouse a makeover worth playing in. This house has been in our family for 5 years now…it’s seen better days.

Frightening huh? No worries, the kids never played in it. Just a family of wasps that made this their home, ha!

I actually wanted to hack it to pieces and get rid of it since we plan on building the kids a big playhouse, but I just couldn’t bring myself to tearing down the first playhouse they made memories in. So, like the family we are, we worked on something broken instead of casting it out.

It was worth every can of spray paint, every trip to target for yet another piece of decoration, all of it was worth the smiles on their faces when they saw the transformation.

This makeover was just about $100! We had the plywood for the platform and some of the decorations. Most of the money went towards spray paint and a few decorations. A very conservative budget with beautiful results!

Items we bought for this project:

•Rust-Oleum flat black outdoor spray paint (approximately $5.95 a can)

• Rust-Oleum white satin outdoor spray paint

•Hanging faux plant (Target)

•Rainbow star garland (Target- bullseye dollar spot $5)

•Metal hook- set of 3 (Target- bullseye dollar spot $1 each)

•Hearth and Hand wreath (Target)

•Gold curtain ring clips (Target)

•Sheer cafe curtain (Target 4.99)

•Tension curtain rod (target)

Ready to see the transformation??

Here she is…

The kids flipped when they saw it! They couldn’t believe it was the same house. Honestly, neither could we haha. We kept staring at it in awe.

If you happen to have an old playhouse that needs a little love or you just want to update the “vibe” altogether… paint goes a long way!

Happy summer!

XOXO, terri
