Time For Some Protection

So our workshop has been in place for 2 years in November, and was looking a little tired. So we decided it was time to spruce it up a bit and protect it before the autumn and winter takes hold.workshop - silk interiors

Here you can see our dog Paco inspecting – he kept a beady eye on us to make sure we did a good job.

Here’s Nicky making a start on painting. Excuse the wildlife behind – we have kept an area behind the workshop to go wild for the birds and bees, although we did have to chop it back a bit to ensure good access. Before painting we gave it a good brush down with a couple of brushes, to get rid of the cobwebs.


We used Cuprinol shed and fence protector poured into some basic paint kettles, and applied with some cheap fence brushes. Although it was only a 5 litre tin, we easily managed to finish the job, including a second coat on the front, which was looking particularly affected by the sun.

A job well done and much needed. Despite Paul almost falling off the ladder and slipping over in the wild garden, it was a fun way to spend a couple of hours.

It’s important to look after your workshop – it’s a big expense, and you need to ensure that you protect your workplace.
