~Newport Update: The Garage~

Good Morning!  I hope you all had a great weekend!
I would like to share some photos of the Newport garage with you today.  :o)  I will definitely be adding more to this room as time goes on, but for the most part it is finished. 

It's funny how I notice things in photos that I didn't notice at the time I took the pictures.  I can see on the right wall that the wallpaper is starting to bubble.  I will have to get that fixed.

The shelf on the left wall is one that I made from bass wood pieces that I picked up at Hobby Lobby.  I didn't want anything really fancy,  just something to hold the things you would normally find in your garage.  I believe the little crates on the top shelf were purchased on Ebay.   The paper towel rolls were made by me.  The large flower pot on the bottom is one that I picked up at a show and the bags of potting soil were purchased from Hobby Builders Supply. 

The overhead door does open and close.   I will have to get a picture of it in the open position and update this post.

The workbench was a kit that I found on Ebay a very long time ago.  I believe it is by GJ miniatures (?)  I can't find a website or any information on them though.  It was a fun kit to put together.  It even has a little working drawer on the front and it came with a small working turntable to set on top.  I decided to leave it as is instead of painting or staining it because I just like the way it looks this way.
The assortment of tools were found at shows, on Ebay and on Etsy.  The blue bins are from Shapeways.    The rake in the corner is by Sir Thomas Thumb.

Here are some shots from the back of the house.  You can see the kitchen to the left.  There will be a sunroom above the garage.  That will be my next project.  I have a picture in my mind, but figuring out where to start is the hard part.
I will post some updates as I add more details to this room, but I hope you like it for now.  :o) 
Next time I will share the master bedroom.
Have a great day!


  1. I still love that garage space. :D So tidy! I wish mine looked like that in real life. That bubbling is the dreaded Yes paste. :[ Where's your hot ride? :D
