Hi friends! I am so excited to share something that I’ve been working on over the last month with you today: our DIY playhouse makeover.
We’re definitely not Chip and Joanna Gaines but with some elbow grease and Rust-Oleum spray paint, we transformed the used playhouse into a minimalist and modern playhouse that Rosie loves!
We first soaked and then stripped the existing decals off of the house with Goo-Gone, which was the longest and most strenuous part of the playhouse makeover (some of the stickers had melted into the plastic after sitting in the hot Phoenix sun for a few years).
We then used a total of six cans of Rust-Oleum’s “Paint and Primer in One” spray paint: four cans in “Amber” for the doors and roof of the playhouse and two cans in “Pure Gold” for the children’s stool and flag pole holders. We found that it was more efficient to take the playhouse apart to paint pieces individually, rather than keep it intact.
We then put the playhouse back together and used durable kitchen stick and peel wallpaper from Target to create gingham shades for the windows of the playhouse. That’s it!
We had so much fun working on this project together and Rosie is loving playing in her new playhouse – her favorite activities are sweeping inside her house and watering her plants before she sits inside and plays with her puppies.
