  • SETTING UP OUR NEW STUDIO

    It has been a somewhat long process, perhaps because of my inability to make up my mind when it comes to what size our worktable should be. Or was it that we had six events in two weeks last month, or that there were a few other kinks in the road… hmm, probably a bit of all.

    We are not quite finished yet, but we are taking some pictures of the process and are super pleased with the outcome so far. One of my favorite parts so far is our flower cooler. We decided to cover it with cedar shingles, install a found old window, a corrugated tin roof, and made it look like a shed. Why not, right?

    Maybe some of our design decisions were based mainly on our urge to break out the nail gun, regardless we are having fun in the process…

     

    Adding the last shingles to the outside of the flower cooler.
