Playhouse Makeover

Every time I see a fixer upper, i envision all the little tweaks i would love to do to update it. When I saw a local playhouse for sale, I immediately saw a modern little farmhouse for Hudson to play in. I snatched it up and Josh and I went to work!

The Process

First, we took the playhouse apart. We then drilled drain holes in the bottom of the pieces since we knew we would be power washing it and we didn’t want to get any water stuck inside.

We then power washed and scrubbed it.

After drying, we spray painted each piece. We added an additional coat to each, then finished with a clear top coat spray.

The only pieces that could not be removed were the shutters, so I wrapped the walls in plastic wrap, and using painters tape to secure it, while I spray painted it.

I purchased solar lights, a bell and mat. After drying, we drilled in the lights and bell, and I added topiaries. Hudson loves it! The neutral colors make it easy for us to decorate each season!
