Kid’s Playhouse Makeover Ideas

,

One of the things the girls were most excited about regarding the new house was this little shed out back. It’s already pink inside, so they thought it was meant to be, ha! Since our home has dedicated office space (and since I usually just sit on my bed to work anyway), we decided this old shed could serve as a play house for the girls! Because it is original to the home and untouched during renovation, it’s going to need a little TLC. I think this spring or summer is the perfect time to start this project, so I need some kid’s playhouse makeover ideas from you! Peek at the space below…

THE BEFORE:

playhouse design ideas

It’s pink inside which the girls love, but there is some damage to the walls and it could use a fresh coat of paint. Three guesses what color they want… I was kind of picturing a fun tile in here, too. Since the house was renovated/added on to recently, there aren’t a ton of makeover projects to do inside, so this shed project makes me excited to play! Maybe little curtains and a table? Leave the cute shelves or tear them out and start over?

Since I totally do tools now (see HERE for proof), I thought about maybe building some window boxes for the playhouse? Or maybe some little shutters or something? Love this old multi-pane window!

Okay, let’s hear it! What are your kid’s playhouse makeover ideas? Leave them below, and help us figure out how to refresh this sweet little space for four sweet little ladies! Peek at some of our other kiddo spaces HERE and HERE for ideas of your own!
Thanks, friends!

  1. What a beautiful play space for your girls. I’M POSITIVE YOU WILL MAKE IT GORGEOUS FOR THEM to make lots of special new memories.

    Definitely leave the shelves! The girls can change the space by season but the shelves give them a place to put their gardening/art/play supplies so they have the floor to hang out in! I could see an added fold down table top on the space in front of the window so they can have little chairs there and draw and “cook” while looking out the window. If there is room maybe a swing chair or an indoor outdoor poof for a little reading nook.

    Oh I love the cute shed! We bought the materials to build one for our grand loves this year. We’re doing the following: adding shutters and window boxes, some small shrubs, (boxwood or dwarf alberta spruce would be nice), and some flowers as landscaping. I’m also making a little “porch”. I would keep the same pink color for the walls, add some white eyelet or lace curtains with pink tiebacks. I like the shelves, I’d keep them. So cute, can’t wait to see what you do with it.

    Love the new Sister she’d! Gorcdich a beautiful historic home the shed had history too right? I would do a beautiful durable tile, kids will be kids, neutral tone. Have the girls pick out some pretty French cottage wallpaper for one wall, and keep the historic shelves but paint them, and off paint the remaining walls. Add board and Batton perhaps. Table, chairs, and lots of cute baskets to store their things. Coat hooks, cute curtains or shades and maybe a French futon or metal day bed….cozy, femine, charming girlie girl hideaway! Neutral basics with pops of colors as season changes that coincide with wallpaper. Outside… window flower box, may be cottage shutter and a mailbox for sure!

    Is it too small to do bunk beds that can fold up onto the wall for when not in use? My best friend growing up had them in her playhouse and it was awesome! We also painted stars all over the inside and everyone wrote their names on a star! Can’t wait to see what you do, it’s all gorgeous!

    Window boxes for sure! Maybe a touch of color on the outside. It will be adorable! And you need something to capture all the giggles and laughter to be had in there!
