How could somebody do this to an Argosy?

What makes a person want to sponge paint the interior of an Argosy? What a crying shame!!!

Not my taste either, but to each his own. Just takes the right person to buy it. (right out of their mind)

"Looks great inside"... says the blind man.

It's not even a GOOD sponge painting job. It looks like a kindergarden class went nuts fingerpainting. Uuuuggghhhh.

I confess to having been a sponge painter, but MY sponging is subtle in pale shades. That Argosy is awful.

I can say this about the paint--It kept everyone from noticing the black-painted paneling, household fridge, missing stove grates, household mattresses, and couch with shutters over the inside of the wing windows.

You missed the poor tile job on the sink, scenes on the overhead doors, ripped plywood on the TV shelf, and other evidences of 'creativity'. I didn't look at the floor, but I know it is likely worthy of comment as well. Sorry, but this Argosy has probably found its final resting place.

Looks like the owner of that Argosy and Birdy's previous owner took the same two classes at the Adult Day Care Center..."Sponge Painting 101" and "Decorating with Large Florals 101"!

I say roll with it. Get some big fruity rum drinks, a grass skirt, blast Hawaiian luau tunes out the door and have a ball.

Wink I don't know....

"Great for deer camp or lake property."



Can't you just envision a group of burley deer hunters sitting around sipping tall, skinny, no-whip latte's and snacking on hummus on whole wheat crackers while they discuss the day's hunting exploits?

Designer camo required....
