Fiona Friday - Building the castle

This is definitely not going to be attractive enough to end up on Pinterest but my wing-it cat castle creation is going well. I've put on the first coat of paint.

Unfortunately, I didn't realize it was below 60° when I was painting. See the bubbles on the upper left? That's what happens when you paint at below the recommended temperature. The paint didn't adhere in some spots. I haven't decided whether or not I'll bother pulling the bubbled bits of paint off before the second coat (which will probably then lead to a third coating -- and there's enough surface area that one coat = one can). The cats don't seem to care about the fact that it's ugly.

I may, in fact, make it uglier by putting duct tape around the crenellations. The upper level is currently blocked off, but there is a hole they'll be able to climb through and both kitties enjoy chewing on cardboard. I don't want them to get a mouthful of pebble paint.

  1. Isn't it great that cats don't care how things look? Personally I think it looks great! Fi seems to like it!

    1. Yeah, cats are cool. Thanks! Fi has definitely had fun with it, so far. But, a new box came in the mail and they are all over that sucker. It has crumpled paper in it! Wheeee!
