Pet Bedroom Idea!!

Hey my fellow bloggers, it has been a while! #MyApologies….. So, anyways, a lot has gone on since my last blog post – the cats have calmed down and come around to the idea of the puppy dog (who aint so much of a puppy anymore!), we’ve decorated out the old pet play room (which used to be the office room if you remember?), and – guess what – we’ve purchased a brand new bed frame!

Firstly, I dunno what got into the cats causing a nuisance that time – I mean they are very well looked after!! I guess it was Angel’s fault – she likes to think she is the leader of the pack (so I’ll just blame her, lol!) …………. Anyhow, the wallpaper in the spare bedroom has stayed up and looks as amazing as ever – thanks to my DIY genius #BlowingMyOwnTrumpet! ………

Oh, and the once pet play room/ old office room – OMG, you’ll never believe what it looks like now….. We’ve only gone and decorated the whole room out, fitted carpets and had a purpose built bed frame! What do you think? (see below pic)

The 3 tier pet bed was custom built by a young guy from our local area – he did a fantastic job! The bed was Kelly’s idea, and it looks awesome (or as the pets say, ‘pawesome’). The pet bed is the style of a bunk bed. We needed a 3 tier bunk bed, for obvious reasons – ie: two cats and a dog!…… Each bed base is the size of a UK standard pillow, which acts as a mattress for our beloved animals. We bought x3 kids fleece throws off Amazon in kids themes such as Minnie Mouse, Toy Story and Sponge Bob…… The fleece throws make an awesome cover over their soft mattress, and make cleanliness a piece of cake (we just whip those throws off each week and give em a wash via the washing machine, and jobs a good en!)….. The three fur children LOVE their beds!

The wallpaper was a bargain, and was purchased from Wilkinson’s. We needed something that was going to fit in with two boys and a girl, and we loved the fun design. Wallpapering took no time at all, and in our opinion – it looks fantastic!

The carpet was purchased from a local store in town, Darlington Carpet Centre, located on Bondgate. We opted for an off-cut (due to the size of the room, and the fact we would have little waste (if any). It was extremely cheap and fit’s the purpose what it was meant for. The cats love the fact they have soft luxury carpet (of their own) to leap on to on a morning, and Hugo (the Chihuahua) – well – he doesn’t know any different!

What to do with your retro Apple iMac!

Hey my lovely bloggers! How are you all? Today’s post is all about Angel and Diesel (our two cats). Basically when Kelly, from Its a Pussy Cats Life, advised me she had found some old pictures of a cool pet bed idea I sent her donkeys years ago I thought I’d share it with you guys! Unfortunately we had already sold our retro Apple iMac Snow Edition prior to me finding this idea, so I was unable to strip my iMac of it’s insides to carry out this fantastic DIY project! OK, so here it is – an Apple iMac pet bed!

I love this idea, it’s so simple and a cool way to be unique! These designer cat beds from Atomic Attic are awesome. Not only do they use iMac’s for their cat bed designs, they even use old retro TV’s and old suitcases. Check out these cats below sporting their trendy cat beds – how cool are these guys?!

Oh, and just so you know – that green vintage Samsonite vanity case on the bottom left (pictured above) excited us so much, as we have the exact same one gathering dust on a shelf behind the fabric screens in our home office. Hmmmm, time to take a Phillips screwdriver to it and dismantle it for Angel and Diesel – if Kelly allows me to that is! I mean, I’ll have to come out with a good defence when she asks me where we’re going to put such a cat bed.  I guess I’ll have to keep you guys posted on this future DIY project.
