I've been working on different ways to do the very last tab - how do you do it?

I just forgot laundry in the machines in the building's laundry room for about two hours, because I was caught up in painting a dollhouse.

...whoops.
263  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Cat furniture on: April 28, 2007 02:58:27 PM
I have an old cat climbing/scratching post. It's decent, but it's starting to lean and tilt, and I cannot find the right key to tighten it - also it's boring and not that pretty.

So I'm thinking about building a new piece of cat furniture, from this:

I've found some used ones online. I'm thinking maybe paint (in that case black), put in deep red fur-covered shelves, cover the outside "steps" with fur, put sisal or some other good scratching material (IKEA's ready-made hallway sisal rugs, maybe) on the sides, make make a little cubbyhole by putting fur on the sides and top of one of the spaces the shelves make and making a smaller entrance, so the cat that loves to go inside small spaces can have her own little haven - maybe even salvage the "tube" from the present climbing post and screw it to the outside.

Any tips, ideas, hints, experiences? I'm still considering the drawbacks and benefits of glue vs staple gun for the different parts of the project.

"Chalk" markers for chalk boards work great on almost any surface and wipe off with water. I think a mirror idea board would be great.

Could you put some tiny nails in the frame of the mirrors, and put yarn or string between them, horizontally or willy-nilly, and then hang stuff off the string with clips or clothespins? Keeps a lot of mirroring, but also inspiration and notes handy?

Not crafty, as such, but my mom has discovered that corks are great to steady a plant in a big ceramic pot - it allows air to circulate and excess water to evaporate, but the plant can't topple or tip.

It's not terribly crafty, but it's the craftiest I've been in a while.

I got so sick of my boring white lampshades. I drew up a robot, taped it to the inside of the shade, and went over it in Sharpie. I haven't decided yet if I want to fill up the entire shade with robots and cog wheels and the such, but I immediately felt better.

Whole lampshade.
