Finished kids wooden playhouse makeover

This post has been a long time coming! We bought the kids a used cedar playhouse back in 2018 when we were stationed in San Diego. It definitely got used, but after wear and tear and the sun beating down on it for 2 years, it had seen better days. Logan and I had toyed […]
