You’re Not Fooling Anybody

While recycling and re-purposing old, abandoned structures is all well and good, sometimes their new owners do a half-ass job covering up their handiwork on the previously-owned buildings. Not Fooling Anybody compiles pictures of locally-managed restaurants, convenience stores and family businesses that modified closed-down, well-known franchises like Taco Bell and KFC.

Some of the results are endearing and somewhat creative, while others…well, others barely bothered to cover up the famous logos of their past tenants.
