We’ve seen a few terrific Little Tikes houses transformed by paint and we have to wonder when Little Tikes is going to take the hint and start using better colors! Here, Ruthie and her husband turned their daughter’s sort of blah playhouse into something a little more fairytale-like.

They used 3-4 cans of Rustoleum spray paint (probably the kind for plastic) and added a few other subtle touches like a rock path and doormat, a darling concrete mushroom and some plants. For the big reveal to their daughter Lily, Ruthie even put out a vase of flowers. Small changes make all the difference!

You can see more of Lily’s madeover playhouse here. Think Ruthie has great taste? Yep, and check out the room she made for Lily which garnered fourth place in our Small Kids, Big Color contest last year.

Thanks Ruthie!
