A different kind of design project

I rarely post many personal or non-graphic design related posts – so I thought this would be fun. It’s at least “design” related in a color-scheme sense ;)

We recently purchased an old, tired, used Little Tikes playhouse from Craigslist. My boys love playing in this like this and I really didn’t want to spend a lot. After getting it, I realized it was MUCH more faded than I originally saw from pictures, but it was cheap enough that I didn’t care. I later got inspired from posts like this one from Lisa on Apartment Therapy and this one from 86 ‘n It (her project is also found on Apartment Therapy) and tons of others on Pinterest
