Shabby Chic- Decorating Tips

We were planning on showing you some of our very own paw work today, but we got sidetracked by big happenings at our place over the weekend.  I think dad and mom heard about Shabby Chic Day, sponsored by our dear friend Alfie Marshall and didn't want us kitties to upstage them.  Silly humans.

We got suspicious when dad brought out the tools. 

Being the mom, that means it's my job to snoopervise the indoor activities.  Jonesie's got dad covered in the yard, but indoors it's up to me.

This can't be good.

Cory stood back and offered her guidance.

What the?  The floor tile is gone and so is the toilet!!  I sure hope that mom and dad don't  plan on using our litter box.  That would be too weird!  I'm a bit uneasy because I did see mom bring in some extra bags of litter after shopping...

Whoa...the walls are gone too.  This is taking shabby a bit too far!

The bathroom isn't the only redecorating happening around here.  Mom and our good pals from Zoolatry worked to redecorate our blog.  We think it's beautiful.

Too bad that Ann, Maggy and Zoey can't help us with our bathroom.

Love the new header! Your humans are like ours, they forget that the weekend is for relaxing and instead do all kinds of "projects".

Whoa! I am really worried too - I would not want MY human using my litter box, that's for sure! I hope your humans plan on setting up their own litter boxes while they redo the bathroom!

P.S. The blog's new look is great - not shabby at all!

How exciting to get a new bathroom! There may be some unpleasant noise at times, though. Your new header rocks!

Kea said...

Oh, wow! The mom says this is what she needs to do with her bathroom, and she's got some mystery leak happening. Could she borrow your dad when he's done?

Your blog looks FABULOUS! Truly fabulous! Well done to you all and of course to Ann, who's exceptionally talented at graphic design!

CCL Wendy said...

Yes, we love your new blog and header and all! It's lovely to see all your kitty and woofie faces at once.

Your Dad couldn't have picked a better time to shabby up the bathroom! Although it wasn't due to you kitties, he did an excellent job.

You could shred the wallboard that's exposed though. A little helping paw never hurts.

Ooooh... lucky you! Well, once it's all done! One of these days I'm going to gut my bathroom!
