Cybele and her husband transformed their very old, gross garden shed into a playhouse that their daughter uses every day. The inside is about 8′ x 10′, and the exterior wrap-around porch adds even more room for tea parties during warmer months. I mean, how many kids have their own wrap-around porch? The answer is not many.

The adults did the fix-up work while their daughter napped. It took a little bit of carpentry, about three full gallons of Kilz paint for the interior, and some leftover paint for the exterior. $250 later and the new playhouse was ready for hours of fun and activity.
