Category: | Workshop/Studio
It started with a throw away comment from my husband that we could have a workshop in the garden. After 8 years in business, I had well and truly outgrown my dining room table and was desperate for a separate workspace! It's a 12' x 8', traditional style, insulated garden office from Warwick Offices at Southam, Warwickshire. It was delivered and erected on 19th November, 2015. My husband and I decorated and fitted it out, with Ikea base units. The 1950's larder unit and wall cabinet with glass doors, were lucky finds on eBay and look great, aswell as providing valuable storage space. We weren't able to put plumbing in, but found a great company online called Teal wash and I have a small sink / automatic tap unit, that is designed for catering trailers. I moved into my studio on the 9th of December and the first cake to be decorated in there, was a Christmas cake replica of my studio, commissioned by Warwick Offices. It's allowed me to reclaim the house as a home and I now have a work space, that I can shut the door on. I used to have work related stuff, stashed all over the house! It's now (mostly) in my cake studio. It's got a 1950's/vintage vibe and decorated in white and duck egg blue. It had to be pretty, aswell as being a practical workspace for decorating my cakes. The pretty caf￩ nets have had to be replaced with more practical roller blinds, to keep the sun from fading the colours from any cakes I'm working on. I love it so much! I think my favourite bit in there, is my ribbon rack, made from plastic gutters! No more rummaging around in a storage box, for a reel of ribbon!
