I got my daughter a second-hand playhouse and spent just £14 transforming it – now it looks even better than new

A MUM has been praised after sharing her amazing transformation of a second-hand playhouse she picked up for her daughter.

Katie Burrows Rapinett took to the Family Lowdown Tips & Ideas group on Facebook to share a before and after look at the playhouse project, as well as revealing the paint she'd used for it.


"A bit of a revamp project today," she wrote.

In the pictures, the playhouse looked tired and a little battered beforehand.

But once Katie had applied the Painter's Touch Toy Safe paint, the house was the epitome of monochrome chic.

She used black paint on the house roof, shutters and door, before using white on the rest of it, including the door handle.

Katie also added some faux ivy around the doorframe for an extra touch.

She was quickly praised for the amazing makeover in the comments section of her post.

"Oh wow, that looks amazing. I tried spray paint today and it barely covered the roof!" one person wrote.

"Did 2 colour tins do the whole house with inner bit too? I want to do this too," another person asked.
