My Backwoods Toy Shed
By the time I had talked them into letting me use it, I was moving 3000 miles away to California. We quickly put up shelving and walls and a tables with whatever was left around the property. In person it is a really cool site to see being surrounded on all sides by plastic characters blankly staring at you from oblivion. I was never satisfied with the unfinished look, so I have been drafting plans for a massive overhaul of the shed into a more dynamic display space. We are adding in a roof and painting the walls. It will be more like a model train layout with a large table going around the circumference of the shed. You will be able to walk though the middle and see and play with all of the playset dioramas we are going to build, very similar to the Harry Potter Lego setup. There will be custom shelving built for each toy line to display each line's uniqueness. A lot of my collection is with me in California and I will be moving it slowly to be in the new shed setup. I am hoping to get the table and the ceiling done when I visit at Christmas. But, until then, here are pics of the the shed as it looks today, cluttered and ridiculous.
