I am so proud of my room my husband built me that I had to share, He finished it for Christmas, we have an unfinished basement, he said he had to do my room first to get all my *&^^%%%$(# out of it. The first pix shows my shelving and big table (it has outlets underneath the table so I dont have to run cords across the room) and then my wall where I hang all my stuff. The opposite wall that isnt shown has cabinets and a sink. This is MY ROOM. Has a lock on the door and everything. It is also always cool and a excellent place to decorate cakes. The long top shelf in the picture is holding Christmas presents in the picture but is great for storing large orders. Im a happy camper!

What a nice husband of yours. I'm lucky enough that I can still most of my stuff in my kitchen yet (I have a big kitchen with LOTS of cupboard space)

icon_biggrin.gif LUCKY, LUCKY, LUCKY!!!!!!!! thanks for showing us your cool room!
i am in the process of getting a "cake room" in my basement, but it will be many months before its finished. i love your shelving!!!!!! i have a small kitchen area, then a small room attached for storage, i think i am going to have to check out your shelves and get me some!!!!!!! i think i will print out your pictures and show hubby....i think he will like them, because he hates things out of order, and my whole room down their is out of order, hahaha, that would help me be organized....something that i am not. haha
since you have your own cake room with doors that lock, you can get a liscence and be LEGAL, which means you can advertise!!!!!!

WOW, how wonderful!! I kidded my husband and told him he just needed to start lining up portable buildings, side by side, on the back part of our two acres....I want one building for all my scrpbooking stuff.....I have enough for an entire room, one for cake decorating, I'm quickly running out of space for all my pans , etc., and one for my sewing and other general crafts stuff. I think he actually thought about it for a whole minute icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif , but then he said if he did that, he'd never see me! icon_lol.gif

So you bake the cake upstairs, and travel downstairs with it? Next you need an oven down there!!! (Unless you already have one?)
I like your groovy tricycle looking things in the corner, hee hee.... Do you drive them around when you are trying to get inspired? hee hee....GET EM OUT OF YOUR ROOM!!! hahahahah!!!! Just joking with you!!!! hee heeee!!!! I don't think mom's are entitled to a room ALL TO THEMSELVES...I think that was written in the children's handbook! hee hee!!!
I am just joking around with you.
I am not jealous, I am genuinely happy for such an obvious blessing you have received! You have a wonderful husband to honor you in that way! He is looking out for your interests and that is absolutely fantastic! GOOD FOR YOU!!!!!!!!!
Thanks for allowing us in your room! ;o)

WOW! I'd give anything for a craft room!

gilpnh Posted 11 May 2005 , 3:01pm

Thanx guys, I am just so proud of my husband, the trikes were Christmas gifts for my 2 3yo boys and hidden in my room. Although I would love to do this full time, after much thought. I love cake decorating as a passionate hobby, I think if I did it full time it would take the joy out of it for me. I bake upstairs, since I do not desire a business per say I didnt have him put a stove in.
I still cant use my room as much as I like, since the rest of the basement is trashed, I cant bring the boys downstairs while I decorate, I still have to do alot upstairs to keep my eyes (incl the ones in the back of my head) on them, mostly decorate after they are in bed.
Man I should post some kid cake disaster stories. Ive got em. The whole point of the lock.

MrsMissey Posted 11 May 2005 , 3:21pm

Wow..lucky you! That room is just too darn cool! I think I need to print that picture out too and show my DH!! Enjoy!!! thumbs_up.gif

llj68 Posted 11 May 2005 , 3:25pm

I'm just GREEN with envy!

A lock and everything?!?! Man--you are SO lucky! I would kill for a room like that.

As it is, my cake stuff is in a box and my scrapbooking stuff is in all the totes and my bead stuff is in another box, my cross stitch is in various sewing bags. OH to have a room like that--it's my dream!

Congrats--it's beautiful!

Lisa Posted 11 May 2005 , 3:37pm

That's great! Can't wait till I can have a space like that.

Looks great! I wish I had my own work space. icon_cry.gif


Lucky you!

Congratulations!

ilithiya Posted 11 May 2005 , 4:52pm

Thank you so much for sharing! You've given me some great ideas for things to do with the unfinished part of my basement! My passions are henna, beading, cakes of course *g*, and Tarot, as well as sewing, painting, and calligraphy on the side. That kind of setup would be excellent for henna classes!

Hmm... double French glass doors would rock between the family room and *my* room... but now I'm confused! Basement, or garage? I could have skylights since the garage would need to be reroofed...

I wonder if there's a medication that would *reduce* creative urges - I have neither the time nor money for all of my creative outlets! icon_biggrin.gif

Thanks again, gilpnh!

jscakes Posted 11 May 2005 , 7:39pm

WHOO~HOO!!! I'm very, very, very happy for you! Wow, what storage capability, working room, elbow room, room to move room, you've got just about everything but the oven!!! You also have a wonderful husband to do all that for you too!
icon_sad.gif Sad for us who don't have that, but my glad overides my sad!!!

hmmm, I'd think I'd get a bigger trike set just so you could ride around down there for inspiring ideas..LOL!

tcturtleshell Posted 11 May 2005 , 8:13pm

Is your hubby for "HIRE"? LOL!! He really did a great job! I would like to turn my guestbedrm into a storage room for all my cake stuff. That would be great! I hope you enjoy it~

jenie Posted 11 May 2005 , 8:27pm

sooooo cool! Wish I have a cake room like that!
Congrats!

thats so awesome... so your husband built it for you... Can i borrow your husband to build me one?? haha..... tell him i said GOOD JOB@!!!

luceymoose Posted 12 May 2005 , 1:20am

I'm SOOOOOO jealous. icon_cry.gificon_cry.gificon_cry.gificon_cry.gificon_cry.gif I'll have to wait till after vet school to get one. If I have time.

ntertayneme Posted 12 May 2005 , 1:24am

Oh wow gilpnh.. that's like a dream come true to me! Congrats on such a nice cake room!!

cocakedecorator Posted 12 May 2005 , 1:53am

This is great! I am showing my hubby this maybe it will give him the kick needed to get started on mine. I love all the storage space you got! Sure beats having cake pans in boxes and stuff crammed wherever it will fit, like me! icon_smile.gif Very nice and I am sure it will get a lot of use.

lastingmoments Posted 12 May 2005 , 7:09am

you know my husband coverted my garage so that i could have an at home studio(for my photography business) but it seems like I went into the wrong business.....I loev to do cakes....and seems like Im doing so many this month ....Do you think my husband would kill be if I decided to change my room.....HEHEHE

cakegal Posted 12 May 2005 , 1:18pm

WOW!!!!! What I could do in a room like that, and all my own...You lucky girl you...
I wish I could have something like that too.... around here you have to get a permit to do anything and everything to your home...ugh...I have a big kitchen ...but I'm out of room for my things... I have stuff here and there and then I have to go hunting when I need something...ugh...what a pain it is.... I wish you the best and happiest times decorating in your room...

greencargirl Posted 12 May 2005 , 9:11pm

that really gave me some great ideas! i can't wait till my fiance gets home from work so i can tell him that i want the storage room downstairs turned into a cake room! i was thinking of adding onto the garage but we really don't have a lot of yard to do that and the garage isn't too big to put anything out there... i just need a place where i can put everything... i would probably still bake upstairs... unless i could find a cheap stove somewhere... hmmm...

momsandraven Posted 13 May 2005 , 3:14am

Congrats on your new play, er... I mean cake/craft room! icon_smile.gif (We have a pink & purple version of those trikes here for my 3 yo DD) I see many hours of fun and creativity ahead for you! Give DH a pat on the back for a job well done! Hmmm... which corner of my overpacked basement could I make into MY cake room??? LOL!
