Welcome friend! I'm so glad you have joined me here at Dreaming of Homemaking. I like to think of this blog as my journal, full of ideas that have helped me turn my house into a warm, welcoming home. My hope is that you too find this little piece of the internet a place to gather ideas and find inspiration.
Do you have a playhouse that needs a makeover? I will be sharing how to paint one and what I learned while painting it! Let’s get started!
This was a new playhouse that you can find HERE from Kidkraft. You don’t have to start with a new one, it can be one that you have or one that you buy used!
*I re-did this in 2018, and will be sharing how I updated it and how it lasted.
I am not quite sure why they choose these colors, but guess what? Just like your house you can make it your own design just with paint! Now lets paint!
We used an outdoor weatherproof paint, you can use any kind. We did Pure white from Sherwin Williams for all the wood. I used this paint sprayer For anything that was plastic we used Rust-Oleum White spray paint. I would use a clear spray over it all – ecsp the plastic you can find it from Rust-Oleum HERE.
You can easily just use a brush – but it will take a lot longer! We had this paint sprayer HERE and it made it go so quickly!
You would paint it the same way as I painted the plastic on this playhouse. I would use the spray paint, and then use a clear spray on top.
I have painted many things and kept it outside and it will last a long time. The only thing that will get the paint off somewhat is using a pressure washer just in one spot. I will make sure to do an updated post!
I found these great ones you can purchase, they can be kept as is or you can customize. You can always look to buy used, but they can be hard to find.
