DIY Playhouse Camper

Learn how to create a large playhouse vintage camper in your backyard for your children that they'll love playing in every day!

DIFFICULTY: Intermediate


We recently built a large playhouse in our backyard styled as a vintage camper for our children. It was a huge undertaking, but worth every second of effort thanks to how much they’re loving playing in it every day!



After building the playhouse camper, I knew painting it was going to be a large task. Thankfully, with my new FLEXiO 2500 it went incredibly fast. This was my first time using this new sprayer, and I was so impressed with how much lighter it is (20% lighter than previous models!) and how quick it was to set up and get started.

I started by painting the interior a bright yellow - my kids love bold colors and I wanted this space to reflect their personalities. I was able to get two coats done in here in just about half an hour per coat.

For the exterior, I wanted a two-tone look so I had to tape off half the camper at a time. Again, it only took me about 30 minutes for each coat, and thanks to the even and consistent spray on the FLEXiO 2500 I was able to do both colors on the exterior with just one coat each!

I was so pleased with how quick and easy it was to paint this entire playhouse with my FLEXiO 2500 - it cut my working time by a lot, and the finished product is so beautiful! There’s minimal overspray, too, which helps so much when you’re working with something like this that has some gaps in it!

I’ve used a ton of different Wagner sprayers over the years, and I think I’m officially converted to the FLEXiO 2500 for my day-to-day painting jobs! I love how much lighter it is, and it did a fantastic job with the playhouse. You can see more of this project on my blog, Love and Renovations.
