22  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / cat pee smell? on: May 28, 2005 11:23:28 AM
Edmond has taken to peeing on the carpet in the office.

I have been going nuts trying to clean it - i even bought one of those spray/scrub/suck machines from bissell. But even that doesn't seem to remove all the detergent, so the carpet feels stiff and icky there now. any suggestions?

also, i have heard that citrus scents are a deterrent to cats. Any ideas for citrus-scented things i could put on the carpet in this one area? He seems to have targeted one corner.


oh cleaning cat pee is so much less fun than, say, painting things...

the other fun light switch cover i have - but i didn't take a picture of it since it wasn't original, i bought it- is andy warhol's silk screened mona lisa. Smiley that started the craze.
i love the idea of the records.

i will try to post a picture. I am not sure if the pepper plant survived the trauma, but i have some cherry tomatos sprouting so hopefully will have another go with them once they get a bit bigger.

I too have a lineup of herbs in terracotta pots along the front porch-area and my office window.

very nice!
i also love to paint furniture, though usually just designs and not actual pictures of things.
I have posted some of them under a thread called "painted furniture" - would love your comments! At the moment i am doing all of the bedroom furniture in a color-block pattern. i just snagged a great rocking chair for 25 bucks that i am going to do once that is finished.
Do you plan out the design first or just start adding things as you go?
Also, about the melamine top - how is it holding up? I have been afraid to do that because of it possibly peeling off. I did get this nasty-smelling oil-based primer that is specifically for plastic, i used it to do the top of a dresser. So far it has held nicely, but it STANK while i was doing it and it takes a day to dry.
Again - beautiful!

i just made one like this with peppers and am waiting for my cherry tomoatos to sprout so i can plant them.

I didn't have any burlap, but i cut the lower leg off and old pair of jeans, and then used that to make the "sock." i used embroidery thread to gather the ankle, which goes aound the neck of the soda bottle, and then decorated the top with some lace. i used a piece of wire to hold the top of the bottle but also put on a ribbon at the top of the sock to hang it from.

the stem of my pepper plant broke as i was dealing with the upside-down situation, so hopefully it will still grow. i will keep you posted, thanks for the idea!

thanks! the plate rack was something i found on clearance a long time ago at a craft store.

the hooks are  great and cheap - they are about $1 at michales and come in many different shapes. They are a great way to organize things, especially when your closet space is limited!

yeah i teased my bf that his testicles would shrivel up after sleeping under the happy flowers! but actually, after the month the place was covered with paper mache while i was making them, he really liked them! then he said we should make more, and add some green vines, which i may do someday but right now am working on painting more furniture!

both the bulletin boards and the clothespin clips are in more detail on separate threads. one is "bulletin board bubbles" and one is "clothespin clips"

thanks everyone!

your shelves look really good. What company makes Gripper, and is it oil or latex? I actually picked up some of the rust-oleum stuff, because i am working on the bedroom furniture that is all wood except, this top inset piece of my boyfriend's dresser, which is laminate. It smells awful and takes forever to dry, but so far so good, although i haven't finished the top coat.

(prime&lime is awesome! i giggled too... Smiley )

pixie skull, i went to home depot and picked out a bunch of paint chips from the "pure" color pallette, and taped them to the walls to motivate myself to paint...glad you like it.
