Yesterday we shared this photo on our Instagram account! A few weekends ago we were finally able to apply some stain to our DIY play set, and it has completely transformed it! We are loving the aesthetics so much more, and are looking forward to putting some fun finishing touches on it now! How perfect would these look strung over the entire thing?
Aside from staining it, we also took leftover bricks we had and placed them underneath the DIY play set. We plan to fill these in with dirt and a top layer on sand to keep them in place. We’ve also just finished a fun new edition to the play set, a swinging area. We currently only have two sings installed, but plan on building an extension with two additional swings because, four children.
Here are a few update photos of what the entire set currently looks like. Keep in mind we haven’t stained the swing set part yet because we’re waiting for the treated wood to completely dry out. We will stain it this color when it’s ready. I also plan on spraying the swings this color.
I’ve touched base on it before, but we were able to salvage the swings, slide and bolts/hinges from the previous play set that we had that was on it’s last leg. That allowed us to save money when it came to finishing this project. You’ll notice the 4x4’s on the ground on the sides of the swing set part, those will be attached mid way down on the a frame, we just ran out of bolts.
