I am so excited to share our playset makeover reveal with you! It’s been so much fun to renovate, and turn our old playset into more of a teen hang out/clubhouse with my girls. I love that I’ve been able to spend time with them building and using tools, and that my Middle helped with the design process. If you don’t remember, this is how our playset started off:

We got a lot of good years out of it, but it was now such a sad playset. We had a ton of rotten boards, and it wasn’t very functional for our teens. We replaced boards, gave it a good cleaning, built a lower deck, a new awning,and painted. Once it had a fresh coat of paint using the HomeRight Super Finish Max paint sprayer (you can see how we did that here at the HomeRight blog.), it was ready for the fun part!
We added new landscaping, hammock chair swings, and decorated. You can also read here why replacing the canopy caused a fair amount of swearing.
You can take a video tour of the renovation, or skip past to see the rest of the makeover.
The playset renovation took us about a month. We often had to work around the rain.
You can see the paint colors we used in this post.
We kept the decor simple. We stenciled a smaller version of the lower deck pattern on top as a small painted “rug” with some floor pillows, a cool table we built ( check out how we made it here.), and a chalkboard where they could write notes.
We even added a live plant!
We also had some other fun elements we picked up on sale with summer close outs.
We found this fun cover that goes over foods a picnics, and with a string of wood beads, turned it into a faux chandelier.
The swings were swapped out for some fun hanging chair hammocks.
We did keep one old swing on the very end just in case.
With the landscaping, after spreading mulch, we added a few hanging and regular planters,
and a few solar lanterns add some light as the sun starts to go down.
I love that they are already using it, and Little spends time in the chairs reading, or hanging out in the upper deck.
We found this sign, and thought it was perfect for the blank wall area.
We want to add some flower boxes to hang on the old climbing wall, but that project will come another day.
We are so happy we gave the old playset a makeover instead of just tearing it down. It will be nice to get a few more years out of it! I sat in the hammock chairs the other day, and really loved just hanging out in them myself!
