Unstyled Argyle

Unstyled Argyle
Argyle, in my humble opinion, is best taken in small doses. Socks. A scarf. Maybe a sweater vest, if you’re feeling natty. But a bright green argyle design painted on the expanse of your garage door? Well, now you’ve gone too far.

Tracy agreed and got to work, figuring she had nothing to lose, other than the giant knitwear-inspired scene that greeted her everyday. What she came up with instead was hand-painted carriage-style doors! Yes, hand-painted! Grand total for this project came to 65 bucks! I’m sure she’s loving how it turned out, and I’d bet the neighbors are too. Thanks Tracy!

    Wow! I bet that dressed up the neighbourhood. It looks sooooo much nicer and lots more style.
    Thanks for sharing! :o)

    Now I’m an argyle fan as much as the next guy (see my tattoo to prove it), but can I just say hallelujah for this transformation. Sweater vests, church socks, and foot tattoos are where argyle prints should definitely stay. 😉

    Whaa….? Is such a thing possible? Impressive and gorgeous. The garage sweater had to go.

    Well, I bet it was either paint the doors or move! Diana

    Oh this is a great transformation! Love the after! This one made me think of “My Big Fat Greek Wedding” with the big Greece flag painted on their garage door!
