Home Renovation Kittehs

Was you wunnering what happened to us?  Heehee, we has been super busy!  After we gotted dig'd out of all the whitey (which only came'd to a foot, fank goodness, not the anticipated 20 inches!) my mommeh decided it was time to start whipping this apartment into shape.  We has been here since September and it still looks and feels like a dorm room, and being stuck inside because of the snows she hadded a lot of time to stare at the blank walls in here and get dissatisfied.  So me and BA saddled up and has been playing the roles of home renovation kittehs!  We snoopervised the hanging of plates, photographs, and mirrors.  We halped my mommeh paint the kitchen, hallways, moldings, doors, and the litterbox room.  I do not know what she would have done wifout us running underneaf teh dropcloth and moving it all around so she could spills paint freely on teh hallway carpet!  I wish'd we had thoughted to take before/after pikshers, but ah well.  The bafroom was aqua wif peeling grey ceiling and grey radiator - it is now a warm tan, including teh radiator, wif a smooth cream colored ceiling.  The kitchen and hall were a very scratched up white, wif all old darrrrrrrrk brown doors and moldings and more grey radiator.  Now everyfing is a beautyful french vanilla color, wif white doors and moldings!  There is just a few fings we has to touch up this week, then all the painting will be done.  Yay!  Then we gets a china cabinet for the kitchen, a runner to cover the painty spots on the hallway carpet, and ta-da, upgrade complete!  Still some fings to do in the living room but those has to wait, cause my mommeh says this stuff costs green papers.  *grumble, grumble*  Always going on about teh green papers.  Anyways, we wanted to show pikshers of us wif painties on us, but my mommeh grabbed us and make'd us wash it off right away cause she was worried it might not be safe for kittehs to go around covered in painties.  I hadded a white ear and tail, and Audrey had french vanilla whiskies!!!  But my mommeh said since we was such a big halp, we gets a reward, and we can start perusing teh innernets and picking out what heated bed we wants!!!

  10. Oh, we think your re-furrbed place sounds so pretty! We'd be verreh happy with after pictures!
    Our Mommy has one lousy wall to paint that she's been threatening to get to for (get this!!) over a year!! Like 17 months. That's long enough to birth an elephant.

    We are glad you didn't get too much snow. Keep warm!

  14. Heated beds sound good - and a fair payment for painted whiskers, ears and tails.

  15. Whoa! I could use some help over here getting TW to do something. The weekend's big project was taking down the Christmas decorations and getting rid of the tree. Pick out the most expensive heated bed you can find. NipandBones.com has some good ones.

  16. Adventures in decorating is fun isn't it!!

    Actually you have before pictures because you posted them when you moved in and showed us around. So maybe you can post the "after" pictures after all! Sounds like everything is clean & freshened up!

  17. My, you have been busy...the painting in our house only got as far as same swatches of colors on the bedroom wall with paint chips taped next to them...real attractive!

    Our favorite heated 'bed' is actually a doggie sleeping bag with this kind of heater underneath:

    Ps: Teri said our favorite heated bed is hers with all the blankets we steal off of her in the middle of the night!
