I started to call this post,
"The Cat Box"
and then I realized it sounds like
I'm writing a post about a litter box!
The girls call our big box fort,
"The Cat Box" or "The Cat House".
"C" calls our sensory rice table
the "Kitty Litter Box"
It was great fun and a wonderful photo prop
at "C"s Pink Kitty 4th Birthday party
this past weekend.
It all started with a ginormous
appliance box from our new wall ovens.
I actually had my hubby trim 2-3 feet off the box
since it was taller than me!
Then, I cut an arched doorway
and some window openings.
"C" helped me paint the box
one sunny morning in the art studio.
A mini paint roller made it go pretty
quickly, it took us about an hour
to paint the whole thing.
Then, I painted kitty cats,
grass, and a tree.
The scrapbook flowers are leftover
from that cute book of
punch-out flowers that we
used for our Heart-Shaped Re-Cycled
(there is a link at the end of the heart box
post if you're looking for your own
paper flower making book!)
Real buttons glued to the center of each flower
added the final perfect touch of whimsy.
We've had so much fun with our new
box fort that it's living in our playroom
with plans to go out to the backyard shed
for some yard/garden play once
Happy Fort Making!
