Lots of people ask me where I store all of my thrift shop finds. The answer is, my garage and basement. However, it is not quite storage but more like clutter. So the time has come. Clean out and clean up. I took a car full of thrift finds BACK to the thrift store yesterday. While I am working on the garage, I thought I would show you how I painted one of the garage walls many years ago. One day I was literally staring at the wall and thought....hmmm...this would make a great canvas. I used to hold huge Halloween parties and tented the area right in front of the garage. I would decorate the whole garage so this wall made a nice backdrop for the setting. Click these pics for a better view!
My kids were quite young at the time and I remember them being a bit frightened by the hanging witch. To the right of the puritan is another character I have yet to finish.
The electrical outlet is in the knot on the tree.
Ok...here comes the embarrassing part....
One side of the garage. One of the motivations for doing this will be posted soon. Let's just say I am making room for one of my childhood dreams. Stay tuned!
The driveway during cleanup. Of course, as soon as I pulled all the stuff out to the driveway the rains arrived. This is going to take a few days but I will show you when I am done. Then I get to start on the basement. It looks like a glass bomb exploded in it!
