This blog shows the folkart I make, my reproduction furniture and other projects. My studio/shop is in my backyard. It's a couple of miles off the main road in West Prince County, Prince Edward Island, Canada. When you come to visit make sure you see – the "Olde Times" Garden House Museum; Grandma's Attic; the Furniture Box; Grampa's Loft (antiques, old doors, etc. in my Dad’s old barn loft); and my World's Largest Egg Beater, certified by Guinness World Records.

Chicken Coop in a 1973 VW Bug - Part 2

     The out side of the reno to the '73 Super Bug. 
     I took out the headlights and replaced them with fishing buoys.  The fender medallions I made using the following: the beak is from pliers; the tail is from a set of  tongs and the body is a small fishing buoy.  Where the engine was I have made it into a feed bin  for shell grit, etc.  For the back fenders I put parts of an old lamp to add a different touch.  I put a Venmar vent on the roof to keep thing dry inside.  On the front door window I put on over racks for screening when the windows are down. 
     I will post the inside reno on the next post.

  1. Kerris you are a hoot. I love the Coop. Not sure how Hitler would feel about his Volkswagen being a coop, but who cares. Love it. Marlowe
