Heidi the cat

Doreen, a new DTI reader, emailed to thank us for doing what we do and while going through our archives found out that we love posting photos of animals on furniture so she sent us some of her cat Heidi. TOO CUTE! Thanks Doreen!

I adore living with a cat or two. Life seems so simple when we look at how they behave.

...or 6. Then you wonder what life was like without fur.

Hi everyone! I am glad you like the pictures. Thanks for the WELCOME "anonymous". About the headboard - I actually designed and made it myself last week. So, it is brand new!!! (Our old headboard was so boring and the headboards I like are way too expensive...)
I got a big piece of plywood cut at Home Depot plus 2 smaller pieces for the wings on each side of the main board. Then I got 2 inch thick fiberfoam plus batting. For the fabric I picked a nice durable linen. I also covered all 28 (no kidding) shank buttons with the same fabric and pulled them through the 28 holes that I had drilled in the plywood. At the end I just had to attach the headboard to the two remaining stilts from the old headboard to raise it up.

I am glad you like it!

That is one adorable cat. And she seems to have good taste. I love the ceramics in the first pic. Know anything about them?

Hi everyone! I am glad you like the pics.

Anonymous: Unfortunately, I am not from NY. I am from Germany and living in the U.S. in Georgia now. But, you can do it! I have never built a headboard before. It takes a little bit of patience but it is not too difficult.:-)

Peggy: The mug is from "Villeroy & Boch". It's the "New Wave" collection. (www.eshop.villeroy-boch.com)
