SpringFling Garage....Day 2




Have you ever noticed how projects seem to take on a life of their own and even start dictating how to proceed?


From the time I plunked my money down to buy this kit, I knew exactly what I was going to do with it! With the help of Photoshop, I could even see what it would look like.
...a run down, abandoned garage ex-livery left behind during the depression: time weary and weathered! I had all kinds of visual aids, from a painting to the real thing I was going to turn the kit around in order to have one large wall where I could display old signs... ....had all these great photos from the "Dirty 30s" depression that I could tease you with

All for not!

I got as far as painting it black and adding the spackling, preparatory to creating weathered wood boarding.

As soon as I put the store and the garage together and then added that porch, I knew exactly! what it looked like. And it was the furthest thing from a 30s garage.
Oh, I can still use the weathered wood exterior! But all I see is a bait & tackle shop attached to a boat house.

    Hey, I've got some fish prints I've been saving for just the right thing, would you like them?
