Head Butts.....

The further I get, the more I fall in love! I spent the day yesterday adding more layers to the Star Wars Toystore. I painted, I sprayed this stone stuff on it.....I 'iced' some more.....and then painted again. It's still not finished....I need to add some darker glazes to it....But this is where I'm at so far.....

Then last night, I decided to start working on the inside. I want a step/shelf to wrap around the base of the walls......So I cut a 1 inch strip of Styrofoam.....and hot glued it in. Then, I started on the desk. It was so easy.....Styrofoam glued to foam board...glued to Styrofoam, that was glued to another piece of foam board. Lost yet?? :)

Then I coated it with the Joint Compound.......While letting it dry, I decided to take a few pictures of my progress. Even broke out a few toys to scatter about....
Took one picture...went to take another from a different angle......And I got head butted!!!

Then he decided he wanted the camera cord, and I had to fight him off!! Literally! Gees...Go away already!!

I did manage to convince him that he had to stay out of the house for awhile so I could start the floor.....

I could see him now.....rolling around in it. I already got fussed at once for getting paint on his nose...
Could you imagine a cat full of Joint Compound??? LOL...Not good.....

So....here's the beginning of the floor. I still have to go back and add another coat of compound, before I can start painting it........Then it's on to the walls....and the the shelves......

I really want some of that compound. It is making your shop look really good. And that cat of yours! If I am not wrong, it's a Singapura Cat?

Katie, it's obvious to me that this is the coolest cat house ever. Otis is confused as to why you don't hand it over already!

LOL, We have already discussed building a Castle for him, LOL!! He always loves the new houses....I think he has spent the night in each of them at least once! ...and in every room in Cora's dollhouse.

San~ I'm not sure what kind of cat he is....just a tabby I think.

Otis certainly did stick his nose in this time. Katie the shop is coming together so quickly and looks really great.

LOL - Otis and Rusty make a good pair. Head butts are common when you are trying to take pitures. The toy store is great. You have a wonderful imagination for creating.
