Officially the Crazy Cat Lady

Does only a crazy cat lady think about prettying up her cat's food station?  I was so flippin' excited by my clearance finds that i got right to it!  The vinyl virgin that i am, i could have used some more instructions, like "it's ok to cut things apart and mix and match" instead of "your creativity will determine your design."  I thought the whole sheet had to go on the wall as is, therefore not being creative at all.  I don't want zen-like instructions, i need step by step talking to a child instructions with pictures. 

Ok, so it's not exactly 100% centered, but it still looks good and adds a bit of cheeriness down there.


I had to tweak the little bow to fit, and i wanted to put the "love" in yellow.  wouldn't that have looked nice? Except during my putting it on lightly phase it slid down behind the baseboards.  Only me.  And yikes, my kitchen is not as olive as it appears. 


Cat's corner.


Finally!  i was waiting til she came over to test it out. 


Oh yes, i think she likes it!


I imagine her thinking "oh, mom," lol, like i am sure most of your daughter's do.  Perhaps this is what makes me the crazy cat lady, more than adding the vinyl.

So there you go.  For 1.97 i have snazzed up the food station.  I give this two paws up!

Please see my sidebar for where i am partying!

I LOVE this and I think Charlie would give me that same look if I did that above his food 'station'. So cute!

Jeralee said...

LOL - I love the cat looking at the picture, trying to figure it out, then looking back at you and thinking "What the heck is this?"

Cute that you made a space for the cat.

Very sweet, both Kitty and the dining area! Makes me realize I should do something to dress up our kitty's "dining area." ...Donna

If you're crazy, you're in a big club! That is really cute and original! I'm always changing out the pads under my cat/dog/ferret* dishes, but never thought to stencil a wall like you did. I love it!
*that is, 2 cats, 1 chihuahua, 1 old ferret.

Your Russian Blue kitty looks just like my dear kitty "Dylan" who passed away last year at the old age of 16...what a beautiful cat!

Marla said...

How cute is that! And all I have for my two cats is a food mat that says Meow. Which I thought was pretty cool until now. Lol!

I like the concept of your blog. I love transforming old things into new. I'm a new follower.

I think is a great idea. So nice to think about kitty's feelings as well. And someday when a yellow "love" reappears it will be meaningful.

"The vinyl virgin that i am, i could have used some more instructions, like "it's ok to cut things apart and mix and match" instead of "your creativity will determine your design."

This made me laugh.

The photos of the cat and her inquisitive expression made me smile too.
