THEY might be something your child will cherish forever – but there's no denying that playhouses can cost an absolute fortune.
Well rather than splashing out a couple hundred quid on a state-of-the-art design, one savvy mum has revealed how she created her daughter's dream playhouse on the cheap – and it looks absolutely amazing.
Posting on the Facebook group DIY on a Budget Official, the mum explained how she picked up the tatty green and red playhouse for just £5 on Facebook marketplace.
She wrote: "[It was] completely filthy, riddled with spiders and mould!"
Determined to turn it into something her daughter would love, the mum started by giving it a thorough jet wash to get rid of the layers of dirt.
After this, she then painted the outside white using Wilko's £5 satin spray paint before then decorating the door frame and plastic chair indoors in The Range's pink paint.
And to finish off the trendy transformation, the mum gave the roof a revamp with grey paint she picked up for £5 in B&Q and added a pretty flower wreath to the door.
She added: "A good jet wash down, and a lick of paint & I’ve been able to create a playhouse of dreams for my little girl, who absolutely LOVES it!
"I really am so so happy with how well it turned out."
And if you're looking to do something, the mum says you can achieve similar results with any kind of paint – as long as it's designed for exteriors.
The post racked up over 7,800 "likes" in the group and other members of the group were amazed by the transformation.
One replied: "Well done you ! For not only creating something stunning but stopping it from going to landfill!"
Another gushed: "Oh wow! It looks amazing."
A third added: "This is amazing !!!! Exactly what I’m wanting for my girl, thank you for the inspiration."
