When we shared our plans for our own backyard play area a couple days ago, and subsequently the initial renderings of how we’d like to paint/makeover the playset we have headed our way–I made the mistake of saying that there’s not a lot of great inspiration out there for good-looking outdoor kids’ spaces. While there may not be a lot, there is definitely amazing inspiration out there that we are taking notes from and I’m excited to share five of favorite jaw-dropping makeovers today. (Quick note: There are bloggers and people out there that have done an incredible, inspiring job at building/designing play structures and houses from scratch–Elsie Larson, Emily Henderson and The Handmade Home come to mind immediately!–but for this post, I wanted to focus on makeovers that have been done to ready-made playhouses and playsets.)
1. Winter Daisy’s Scandinavian Wooden House Makeover
Apparently, Melissa had this budget-friendly playhouse for three years before she decided to give it a facelift–and it’s hard to believe it’s the same house!
I’m obsessed with all the details she added. The warm pastels, chalkboard details and gold trim all pop on the freshly painted white backdrop. And the little minty dutch door? So good! See more photos here.
Pretty incredible, right? I’m sure there are more outstanding ones I’m missing. If you, or someone you know, tackled a playhouse/playset makeover–we’d love to see! Leave a link in comments so we can all check it out.
