    The construction of the Nightshade Manor facade has been completed. The facade is 20' wide and 13' tall. Here are some pics. Please excuse the picture quality, these were taken with my cell phone. Most of the trim and the windows are vintage pieces from the early 20th century. The "aging" process will be completed this weekend. I'll be adding a front door, vintage porch lights, additional trim pieces and vines. Looks like Skelly has found a new home.

    It all looks VERY GOOD!
    I like those concrete block curtains in the window too! They look serious!

    Mind, that ROCKS!!! I'm especially impressed with the use of multiple pastel colors as the base. Most people don't realize that a lot of old 'Victorian' styled homes were quite colorful. Homes in the deep south were also painted in brighter colors that tended to fade in the sun over time. It's a very nice touch.

    This town I'm in, Mount Carroll, Illinois was once referred to as "Paint City" because to others not from here it seemed as if the citizens here painted their houses too much or something? Maybe the painters just worked real cheap back then?
    I painted the courthouse fountain, it's wrought iron? 1800's? decorative with swans and fish on it, I used a variety of colors, making the foilage and critters have their own realistic colors and I caught H e ll! From one guy who knows alot about antiques (but nobody knows it all) I later found out it was a common practice to paint these like I did. The Smithsonian even has some of them, as did the French Quarter.
    Of course many years ago when a county prisoner originally from the west coast painted this he used day-glow colors , which faded almost before he cleaned his brush.
    Ever hear that the ceilings of southern porches were painted light blue because this was thought to confuse hornets?
    I think my ex who worked in a southern museum might have told me this?
    Of course getting stung by a confused hornet hurts the same.

    Jim, I live in an old southern home and the roof of my porch is painted light blue. I was told it confused many types of insects including mosquitos. Hmmm. Gotten plenty of bites sitting on my front porch swing. :?

    If it was oil based paint maybe the confusion only lasted until the paint dried? Fumes, you know!
