To get started I laid down some left-over plastic sheets and disassembled the playhouse. I also gathered some old 2 x 4 wood cut offs to set each piece of the playhouse on. For example, one wall was supported by a piece of wood on the top and bottom to keep the wall elevated off the ground in order to ensure the fresh paint was not touching the plastic sheets.
I mixed the Natura Safe Prep with some warm water and wiped down each piece of the playhouse. Natura Safe Prep is a naturally derived phosphate-free degreaser that preps the surface and helps with paint adhesion. It can also be used to clean the surface after it’s painted!
