Coventry Cottage - Day 7

So yesterday I started putting the first coat of paint onto the house. I listened to my husband this time, (instead of trusting my gut) and painted the house green...(well bad idea)... The green that I painted it, looked more like grass, baby peas or maybe even something that comes out of my infant's diaper...it looks AWFUL!!! I moved away from that and started priming the rest of the house pieces, I used plastering compound to fill in the holes on the porch roof whe

Coventry Cottage - Day 6

Day 6 - So you could actually count this as day 6, 7 and 8...(because it took me three days to do everything I've done so far!!!)

Coventry Cottage - Day 1, 2, 3 & 4

So I had an original blog about the Coventry, deleted it because I thought I was going to sell the kit, ended up keeping the kit, and am now putting it together and going back to blogging about it!!! So I bought my kit off of Ebay, and if I could recommend anything to anyone, I wouldn't suggest doing this. I think that you get a great deal, but what you are buying (most of the time) is seconds or something that might have been sitting in wet storage for a while...wet + wood = crap!
