Y’all know how much I love spray paint, right?  I’ve probably written your eyes off about it already.  So, you can imagine how excited I was when a super-creative, super-artistic, and super-beautiful high school friend of mine posted a picture of this playhouse makeover on her Facebook page:amandaplayhouse2

Here’s what the kiddy abode looked like before:amandaplayhouse
Spray.  Paint.  Love it!

Amanda has two girls (woot, woot!) and definitely revved up the girly factor with some fun feminine spray paint, don’t you think?  I’m smitten!  I’ve been hatching this idea to hunt down two identical fisher price-esque swings on craigslist, spray paint them white, and hang them in the big oak in our front yard and after seeing Amanda’s plastic-meets-spray-paint transformation, I’m even more excited about finding those swings!!

Anyone else taken spray paint to outdoor plastic?  Anyone else going to after seeing this?  Me, me, me!!!

Thank you Amanda for letting me share!


  1. I need a spray paint tutorial! I got those cheap unfinished IKEA dressers for the kids and would love to paint them but I'm so lost when it comes to brands and types and all of that paint information...

  2. We received the same playhouse for our little girl, do you know the brand of spray paint used, and if it has held up? Thank you.

    1. Ack! So sorry it took me so long to get this info for you! I asked Amanda and she said it still looks great! She used Rustoleum Painter's Touch spray paint!
