Garage done... and an introduction

I've finished a room.. ok it's the Garage.. the easiest room.. lol.. but hey it's finished.


Well, when I say finished... I mean the painting and decorating is finished. No styling yet. But trims are done and lighting is installed.


And door hardware has been added.


I did want to put a laundry in here, but there is not much room for anything other than the lilac Morris Minor! :D


Upstairs Guy and Girl found it when they started renovating the basement. It belonged to the Great Aunt they inherited the house from. :)


Upstairs Guy has made a cameo appearance on the blog before but you haven't met Upstairs Girl yet. :)

She has claimed the Morris as her own, given it's decidedly girly colour.


It's just the right kind of cool vintage car for this San Francisco hipster.


The windows still roll down, old school style. :)


Upstairs Guy is going to have to do some work to it, to get it running at it's best. 


 They are pretty happy with their garage find.


See ya! Upstairs Girl is going to take it for a spin around the block! :D 


In other news...  I'm off on a ski holiday tomorrow. I'll be gone for 3 weeks! I may post some holiday pictures if the wifi in our rental is any good. If not, I'll see you guys in a month! :D

  1. At first I thought it was your real 1:1 garage! It looks very good! The car is awesome. I agree with Girl, it's definitely a girly colour and perfect for her :-). What a find!

  2. Hello Sam,
    Have a wonderful trip. The garage looks wonderful. You say it is the simplest room, but I have seen many a garage in miniature and people forget a lot of the details that make it look real...but yours is fantastic and looks very realistic. The car is awesome.
    Big hug

  3. Have a great time on your trip. Your garage looks great and the car is perfect.

    I'm with Giac, garages are very easy to goof up because of how deceptively simple they are. People take them for granted and forget there's actually a lot that goes into them.
