I have been wanting to get our kids a plastic playhouse (you know, the Little Tikes type ones) for a while but knew I wanted to get a used one to update and give a makeover, and let me tell you – that was less than easy to find. Now that I own one I get why people don’t just sell these things often. They are amazing. They pop together with no screws, and I love that we can take it apart and put it in the storage room over the winter (because midwest winters are brutal).

To update a playhouse of your own, you really only need a couple of items.
Take apart the playhouse and clean it WELL. I used a degreaser because I knew that would really get the dirt off. I then used a wet cloth and wiped the whole thing down one more time to get any leftover cleaner off.
Next paint – Go with thin coats, and know that it will likely take a lot of paint.
Assemble and play…I know guys, super tricky!!
The kids LOVE this thing, and I haven’t been worried about how it weathers, because I know I can touch it up each year when we get it out!! So if you have a sun faded playhouse, or you’re just looking for the one you have to have a cute “mini house” look, now you know how easy it is to do your own playhouse makeover!! I would love to see your finished product if you try this out!
