This playhouse remodel was done for our little girl who calls her playhouse the "tree house." So with that inspiration in mind the colors picked to transform this sun bleached old playhouse into one that wasn't such an eyesore.
Our backyard does not like to grow grass due to heavy shade. Our solution was to make a play area using pallets (that we stained) and rubber mulch chips.
The main spray paint for used was Krylon Fusion Spray paint because I wanted to try the new "Plastic-Bonding Paint" However it only comes in a few colors. So I ended up using Krylon regular spray paint which covered as well though there there was something different about the the Fusion including being dry to the touch in 15 min. or less.
Colors Used: 8 Cans total
3- Krylon Expresso Bown (outside)
2- Krylon Ivy Leaf Green (outside roof)
1 - Purple Door (outside)
1- White (inside)
1- Blue (inside)
I did not redo the shutters because I felt the original color worked with the new color scheme.
Time: 3 hours give or take
- Don't skimp on the spray paint. Especially if you find a sale. (Found it for about $4.50 at Wal-mart, and $3.99 on sale at Ace Hardware. )
- Make sure you take everything apart. It makes spray painting a breeze.
- Lay everything flat on the ground. The spray paint really dripped when things were upright.
- Don't paint when it's windy. Even a little bit of wind equals lots of wasted paint.
Fabulous! She loves her new "tree house."
Process: The biggest and most time consuming part was taking apart and cleaning the entire playhouse.
