Most people would consider this playset good to go, as is. It’s big, in great shape, and loaded with features. Clear a space, secure that puppy to the ground and let the kids get crazy. But some folks are not satisfied with good to go — they envision great to go. And then they make it happen.

Whee-ooo whee-ooo, call the fire department because this project is blazing with awesomeness. Michell from Girl in Air scored this play set used for a fraction of what it would cost new. After enlisting a few helpers to prep the site and re-assemble it in place, Michell went to town with a paintbrush and her eye for detail. We think the homemade ‘Fire Station’ sign looks great, and the way she hung a hose using an old galvanized bucket fits in perfectly with the overall look of the project.

Once she adds a planned fire pole (a must-have, of course) this project will be complete and her backyard will be the hottest piece of real estate in town.
