|Busted and missing 2 shutters.|
|Rogue spray paint|
|Some funky, smelly algae-like stuff. It seriously STUNK.|
Wait for it to dry, then flip it over and paint again. Once THAT is dry (and any subsequent coats of paint that may be necessary), then you can assemble it.
I had to completely replace the doorknob because it was trashed. I kept the back washer attachment, found a 1 3/4" bi-fold door knob that looked nice and a 1/2" washer for the front (so the knob wouldn't slip into the doorknob hole). Paint the washer the same shade as the door, attach the knob... voila! New doorknob. Works well since Little Tikes doesn't sell replacement parts for this particular playhouse. (Nice to find THAT one out after buying it. Grrr....)
