My first and biggest project being Preacher Shaw's kitchen, Footloose is set in Beaumont Texas during 1984 and since the Shaw's live in a parsonage adjacent to the church I figured I would date things by about 20 years... which conveniently puts it around 1964. (My favorite, lucky me!) This project also became my "Andy Griffith Tribute Kitchen" in memory of his passing.
Church Basement Ladies last August. I went with a more understated pastel color scheme. I used a light butter yellow on the walls, with dark brown wainscot and six inch base boards.
(Notice the faux painted wall plug behind the cart? I LOVE doing stuff like that!)What parsonage kitchen would be complete without a print of "The Last Supper" hanging up?
(Also from the kitchen of the Casablanca, It was my Great Grandmother Avery's.)
(Mrs.& Reverend Shaw at home.)
Other projects included a honkey-tonk bar.
(Before.)Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. As much as I protest wagon wheel furniture "I will never want that wagon wheel coffee table" I honestly wouldn't mind taking this bar home after the show! Turquoise and brown themed I added ship rope for a more western feel. The galvanized tub holds the bars ice down drinks. Later I added a pair of long horns to the center front of the bar, but RATS I don't have a picture!
A weathered Coca-cola sign-
(Step 2.)With the help of friend Sheldon, we made a lattice base for the billboard (like they use to have way back when.) I took a deeper red and dry brushed over the main part of the sign, then painted the lattice an off white and "weathered" with black paint and a sponge.
To further the distressed look of the aging Coke sign, I took a 2x4 and beat the lattice up a little bit. The finished product looks just like a long forgotten sign, one that looks like countless old billboards scattered in fields all over the state of Texas.
I had a time working on this Kenny Loggin's blast from the past of a show, and now I think I too will go 'cut loose'!
