I came for a visit to Delaware to see my parents. You might recognize my dad, Karson My mother asked if I could repaint the playground house.

I started by painting it the color of the house, so that it would blend in. Mother wanted something that was not so rustic just off her new deck

It was originally painted very rustic.

My mother took off the platform on the closest side and moved the slide back to the building. Dad put in a new railing to keep the children from walking off the end, and to give them support as they get ready to slide.
The building was painted with vines, leaves, flowers, bees and butterflies.

Here is my son ready to slide down.

And him sitting on the top of the steps.

Some more detail pictures.

aaaw this is wonderful
I really like that photo where the tree leaves blend right into the leaves on the playhouse. You’ve done a great job!
