How to Upgrade Your Playhouse with Inexpensive Details
I knew the kids would love this playhouse, but I’m not going to lie, I selfishly wanted one that I could have a blast decorating for them. There were several aspects of the house I wanted to change and it made all the difference in how it looks! You could easily make the same changes whether you bought a new house or a fixer upper from Facebook Marketplace! Honestly, I tried to snag one forever on Marketplace that I could fix up. After many unsuccessful attempts, we bit the bullet and bought a new one.
I painted the Door. The original door was red and it simply wasn’t giving me the look that I wanted. So, one can of exterior black paint later and here we are! It turned out exactly like I wanted.
Gold colored hardware. You might want a different look, but I am a sucker for a black and gold hardware combo. I switched out the door handle, hinges, and added a house number all in gold. SUPER easy cheap ways to make a HUGE impact.
Put something underneath the playhouse. We opted for an outdoor green rug that’s weather resistant. Not only does it give a fun look to it, but it makes it a little more cozy. CLICK HERE for what I used.
I spray painted the faucet gold too.. because it’s the look I love.
Decorate the crap out of it. You’ve went this far…. this is the fun part! Dollar tree has perfect seasonal items that will inexpensively allow you to switch things up seasonally! Y’all know I’m going to deck this thing out for Christmas!
I’m going to use my cricut to create a “hello” decal for the front door! Actually, I just made one but it’s raining outside. I’ll share that with you guys on instagram when I’ve applied it.
I’m in the process of decorating the inside. I’ll do a post on that when it’s done!
