I'm a big dreamer too - but no courage to follow through. I congratulate you for having that courage.

Paint is one of the simplest and cheapest ways to decorate - so maybe if you take the existing building and just paint with any whimsical colors that you love. It'll be a start!

I wish you all the best - keep us posted

Minnie's house is such a cute inspiration for a bakery... It looks like a cupcake to me. There is definitely some potential in the building you're remodeling. Some chunky trims and bright paint, you could do wonders with the exterior of that building. icon_smile.gif Good luck.

First of all, congrats on buying the shop, and moving into your new home!! Your shop looks like it will be the perfect little baker when you get done with it!

Not sure if you've already decided on a name for your bakery...but after seeing your pictures, I thought I might tell you this. My SIL and I joke about having our own show on the Food Network one day, I'm going to make cakes, cookies, etc for the first half of each show, and for the second half, she's going to make them healthy. Anyway, we decided that we would name our show 'CRAVINGS'. Thought it might be a cute name for a bakery too. Especially one like the first pic.

THANKS FOR ALL THE SUPPORT!

i didn't know that was minnies house!...i google houses all the time...i think i might have put in pink house this time.

this place was packed to the ceiling with junk and old furniture...no one wanted it, there was about 30 feral cats and an old bum living in there too...

i got it for a song...there was a small (700 sq. ft )building behind it that went with it...they used to sell bar b que out of it...i live there now...it took a year to get it livable...i finally moved in it because i was getting tired of robbers stealing all my power tools and stuff....

THEN

...the water main broke...i mean there was no saving it....over 130 feet of crumbling line under concrete....so i carried water from the shop to the house for several months.....since i couldn't afford 3 grand for the plumber...my son and i got shovels and a concrete saw and put it in ourselves.(we looked it up om you tube)

it's been an adventure.....but i love an adventure...although taking a shower with a metal bucket with holes punched in it nailed to the ceiling joist kinda sucked...HA HA HA...HOW GILLIGANS ISLAND!...but i'll never take hot running water for granted again.

thanks for the name suggestion...but i've been in business here 6 years called "the little cake co."...that's how everyone knows me.

i already bought some antique stained glass windows off ebay to put in the place....i think i'm really gonna try to do it up.....PINK AND PURPLE!....i may even mix some glitter in the varnish and make it shiney.

think i'll go look at mickeys house now...and some other disney stuff...THANX GUYS!
