Several years ago some neighbors gave us their old Rainbow playhouse/swing set play structure.
We’ve moved the thing at least three times, and our current yard didn’t have a great flat spot for it. We had a hill in the corner of our yard that wasn’t very usable, so we decided to separate the playhouse and swing set. And somehow I talked my dad into renovating it for us (yes, I’m THAT person). It was a pretty serious renovation- he extended the deck on both sides, built all new railings, raised and re-oriented the roof.
Now it faces the house, and not only looks cuter, but I can sort of see whats going on up there from my kitchen window. Win all-around!
The kids were over the moon when it was finished. And so was I! My dad of course gets most of the credit for this one.
The girls are always hoping to get mail delivered to their mailbox, and we are now a neighborhood hot spot, for better or worse. Playhouse picnics are also a favorite! I refinished these fun IKEA FLISAT stools to go with the table (also built by my dad).
And I also love how it looks at night! One of these days we’re going to try glamping out there! You can check out my Outdoor Lighting 101 post HERE.
