castle & cubby / outdoor playhouse roundup by mstarr design
the promise of warm weather combined with every waking hour at home has me ready to give max her first outdoor playhouse! of course i made the mistake of pulling up some pictures when she was in the room and she was like a moth to a flame, immediately running over to ask “what’s that?” and “i want that one”. i’ve seen some really beautiful makeovers, some with minimal effort and some with herculean effort that i probably don’t have the patience for.
i ended up ordering this one from wayfair which is made of weather-resistant cedar, has good “bones” for a makeover, and is a good price point! it’s on the smaller side and while we technically have plenty of room for something bigger, this feels like a good size to start with. maybe if it goes well, we’ll upgrade her to a double decker down the road, ha. i have some thoughts on what i want to update and add…everything from adding a sconce, painting the sides, adding flooring, and of course decorating with lots of flowers!

what do you think? should i go white? black for a modern twist? a color?
i’ve rounded up additional options below…some are good to go as is and others could use some help whether with paint and/or decor.
01 / this market playhouse was a top contender. i’d maybe spray paint the yellow bins + swap out the turquoise fabric but the rest is lovely!
02 / this is more of a custom design and a higher price to go with it but OMG IT’S AMAZING. IT’S A FARMHOUSE!
03 / those scalloped shingles are just adorable.
05 / a quick painting of the roof and this guy is ready to go.
06 / i just love the green color of this victorian house.
07 / picket fence for the win!
08 / another investment and a stunner farmhouse style.
10 / playhouse + playground all in one.
11 / love how this one has a built in bench for optimal pretend serving.
can’t wait for ours to arrive + to get to work!
