DIY : Painting kid's playhouse

Hand-me-down or old kid's playhouse laying around? Freshen it up with some spray paint for a new fun toy!



A family member was gracious enough to hand us down a plastic "little tikes" playhouse for the girls last summer, so of course I decided to paint it and make it our own.




You can do any color scheme you'd like, but I linked the paints and exact colors I used below.


I just gave the house a quick scrub down before painting, no other prep needed!


I used 3.5 cans of White paint : Purchase on Amazon here

2 cans of Gray paint : Purchase on Amazon here

and 1 can of Yellow paint : Purchase on Amazon here


For the rocks on the front, I originally painted them all white but decided they needed a little "something" So I went over it by very lightly pressing the sprayer on the gray to give it more of a splatter texture as the paint barely came out when lightly pressing

Another fun touch (hard to see in the image) : a house number or "hello" on the front door. I just used my Brother Scan and Cut to cut and add to the front door


Shoot me an email if you have any questions + happy crafting!
