Hello! I hope your Monday is off to a great start! I had the craziest, busiest week last week, and even had to work this weekend, but I was DETERMINED to get my pet station finished. So I worked on it late into the night last night, and I’m pleased to say, IT…IS…FINISHED!!
So let me refresh your memory. It all started when I saw this picture on someone’s blog (and for the life of me, I can’t remember where I saw it. Perhaps you know??)
Since my tiny little condo is only 834 square feet (I told you it was tiny!), I decided that something like this would be perfect! My next thought was wondering where I was going to put it. Then I realized I could throw out this old desk that my neighbor had given me, and make room for a new pet station.
Then it dawned on me. I could USE this old desk, and turn it INTO my pet station! (Yes, it takes me a while to get there sometimes, but I eventually get there.) 🙂 So I set to work on my plans.
As I set about transforming the old desk, the plans were modified a bit, but it’s still pretty similar to what I had orginally envisioned. So are you ready to see the final product? Here it is:
I love it! And so do the girls. During the last week, even before the cushion was finished, I think I could count on one hand the number of times I saw them OFF of the cat bed.
It’s so rewarding to have a plan, spend time making something, and then see that it’s ACTUALLY being used for its intended purpose!! Now as much as I’d love to convince myself that Boo loves it too, I really don’t think he cares. As long as he has access to his food and water, he’s a happy boy.
Here’s another quick before and after side-by-side view:
Addicted 2 Decorating is where I share my DIY and decorating journey as I remodel and decorate the 1948 fixer upper that my husband, Matt, and I bought in 2013. Matt has M.S. and is unable to do physical work, so I do the majority of the work on the house by myself. You can learn more about me here.
