1  One dumpster dived table and a bunch of paint.....yay (pic middy) in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Bad Kitty on: November 19, 2012 04:55:55 AM
So my Hubby got this table from the dumpster two years ago. I finally got around to making it mine. I painted it to match the new kitty bed I got a few weeks ago. I sanded it down a little. I ran out of sanding time as my front door was being replaced and this was my art therapy as they shook and destroyed my place hehe. So it's not perfectly perfect but it's much more my style now.

Before and After


First Coat

Midgame Mess

Close Up

Ohhhhhh an action shot. Love mah Greyson kitty.

Oh how thee failured. This is turning into a Saga of me versus the kitchen. I went to clean the wall and sheets of paint came off.

So now I have to figure out how I am going to deal with this mess. The back splash is recovered just need to clean up some rogue adhesive and put more sealant on it but the wall....well I am not sure how we are going to deal. We might just spray adhesive over the whole boat and slap the back splash back up and call it done.

3  Love Potion Lotion Bars YUMM! (pix a bit) in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by Bad Kitty on: July 14, 2012 08:22:08 AM
It's been a while since I made any lotion since I have a huge bottle of massage therapists base. I got a whole gallon free from a lady who was opposed to using Arnica. Long story but this isn't the endangered plant but hey it's your $100 bucks down the drain.  I use it often but wanted a thick heavily scented delight for those days I just wanna really feel pampered. The oil, called love potion smells like heaven, incense ashes and just yum. I know you say ashes? Yah kinda in a vampire been in the dirt kinda way. Hard to describe but amazing.

My ghetto set up. Hey in 500sq feet you don't have the space to store all sorts of double boilers and molds. So I improvise and use empty bottles and my stainless cookware.

Poured into my molds

One for now and three for later stored in the fridge.

4 ounces shaved beeswax
6 ounces coconut oil
2 ounces EVOO
8 ounces shea butter
25 drops scent

Put items 1-3 in a double boiler once melted add the shea butter and heat just until it melts. Remove small pan from water bath and stir in scent. Pour into molds and let set up. Freezer takes 15 mins. Fridge an hr or so and on the counter overnight.

4  up-cycled trash and new computer desk. (pix a bit) in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Bad Kitty on: July 13, 2012 10:13:30 PM
This was my desk this morning, complete with lazy cat. EWWWWWW. Unfinished wood on top of four old tubs from Rite Aid. It was a mess and very depressing.

Mr. Kitty said build your own desk, builds character. Challenge accepted, mission accomplished.

So I ditched two of the tubs, the empty ones and grabbed a piece of scrap beat up wood. I restained the wood and put some light sealant on it and covered the tubs with a velvet throw. I needed more space so I got a little table I refurbished last year and put a few coats of sealant on it and viola. New desk with some NiN decoupage to boot lol. I took two of the drawers out the open space seems better.

NiN Decoupage

Hubby was under the impression I was fixing these and placing them back where they were. Oh boy. Well I got the one over the sink done. The big one will have to wait until I have a nap....He did help. He caulked that makes kitty happy.

6  Re: Show Off Your Hair--Dyed, Cut, or Styled by Yourself! in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by Bad Kitty on: July 13, 2012 02:09:01 AM
Cut and style by me last year. Color is copper.

Now Color 07/12

After a few weeks in the sun and water, cut/style by me as well 07/12

Strange month, opted for a strange color 2011

Partial Pink in 2010

Blonde sometimes 2011

Was real sick losing lots of hair, so I was bleaching and tweaking alot. 2009

I do not let stylists near my hair, if they manage to do what I want it costs me over $200 bucks. I'd rather the joy of butchering, bleaching and dying my locks myself at a cost of $.7.92+ tax a pop. So I haven't had a real hair cut since I cut 30 some inches off in 2008 when I started losing it during my sick and dying phase.

So over three years ago I did this. The first picture is of the guard over my sink.

Recently we developed a roach problem when some neighbors moved in. Previously the apartments were empty for over a year. So Between the exterminator and Raid I have gotten the problem controlled. However, the splash guards could have been harboring bugs. They weren't as the double sided tape killed anything near it but they are showing some serious wear and tear. The one over the sink has fared better but the one over the stove, well it needs work. So what do you think? Fix? scrap? Go to Lowes and by back splashes at $20+ a pop? Would love to know if anyone else did this, how they did it and if it is in good shape some years later.

Here is a now picture with them off the wall on the floor.

Notice the missing pieces and grease on the cards my little butt couldn't reach on a regular basis to clean.

P.S. all the cards were donated from either friends and loved ones or the local Hollywood video that closed down down the street from me. I have new ones from friends to replace the lost ones if I decide to go that route.

Here is a picture of what I have dubbed the memorial plot. The one in question before. It will be mostly food now. I put some cos and two heads of cabbage down today. We'll see what else I can come up with. The rose is alive....If it ends up taking over, so be it. The garden was for the roses anyhow.

Here is a pic of my main plot right now.
