I stole this from my mothers front porch. This cute stool was covered in cobb webs and brochures to places my mother was never going to! I have had my eye on it for awhile, thinking I could make it into a cat feeder. I knew it wasn't going anywhere. You can rest assure a hoarder will keep everything, FOR-EV-ER!
I finally...um... "moved" my mothers sacred brochures and cleaned away the cobb webs. I had my boyfriend help me cut the holes with a jigsaw. We found small stainless steel bowls at Wal-Mart. We turned the bowls upside down and traced around them. We used a jigsaw to cut the holes just slightly smaller than the bowls. Then, I sanded the whole thing.
I love natural wood, but I also love the look of fresh white paint. So, I did both! I stained the top and bottom and painted the sides white. I wanted to get creative with the hearts on the sides. I had a few different ideas. I thought maybe I'd paint just the inside of the hearts red to help them stand out. Instead, I decided the heart reminded me of a cat face. I used a permanent marker to draw the whiskers and ears!
My cat is so spoiled. She does whatever she wants. A life I admire. I swear, she sleeps all winter and runs all summer. Winter has been nice cause I can always find her in the house to cuddle and annoy. Now spring is in the air and she's running. I am now ONLY the hand that feeds. No longer the lap that cuddles. Boo hoo :( Until next winter....
In the meantime, I'll be on Hometalk, looking for my next project. Hometalk is my crafty little secret. It's like Pinterest, but all about home stuff. There are so many projects you'd never see anywhere else. I swear, check out my boards. I guarantee you've never seen people get so creative.
What if you used two doll sized chairs, like the one pictured above, and used it for cats or small dogs? How Cute?! Or I guess, if you have a huge dog, you could use a human size chair?! Right? LOL!!
Hey! You'll love these too!
