Mancat Monday – Shabby Chic Day

ShabbyChicDay

Today my pal Alfie Marshall is having his Shabby Chic Day.  This is a special day where Anipals everywhere get to show off their decorating and interior design skills, home improvement tips or just how you help around the house.  I must admit, I am not that creative when it comes to home improvement since I’m really not much with building things.  I also must admit that my interior design skills are somewhat limited.

However, not to be totally left out of this special day I did try my paw at an important and useful interior decorating idea a while back.  While I thought the end result was pretty good, it seems as though I was the only one that liked it.

I sharpened the claws and gave Creative Fringing a whirl.  You know what I mean, sometimes there is a piece that would look much more attractive with some added Fringe.

Oh well, I thought it turned out great.  For now, when it comes to Creative Fringing my paws are idle.

Anyways, I look forward to seeing the other ideas today.  And remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!  Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

Good job Brian. We really like that fringe. We have lots of fringe on our chairs. Mom forgot to put that on the post today.
Thanks for the BG plug. She is such a nice cat.
Have a great day.

Good job! Alex's specialty is fashion. He likes to take one of Marc's plain shirts and add some flair to it by adding litte holes.

Banjo is very good at decorating with his fur coat… I find it everywhere. And even though he only has his back claws, he still manages to make a few fringes here and there! 🙂

Happy Monday kitties!

We think that was an excellent decorating technique, Brian. We can't understand why it wasn't lauded by your beans, either! Well done, we say!

You have a good eye for noticing how boring some furniture can be. A bit of fringe adds much needed interest.

Nice work!

Oh Brian, you are a creative designer…how clever to come up with this fringing idea 🙂 My boys each have their own talents, Gambino thinks couches look better when they're slightly shred, Mishka thinks the carpets on the stairs need some shredding, and Bailey Bear says "Everything looks better from a different angle" and therefore knocks over all objects that he can find 🙂

Our kittehs did a little "creative fringing" a while back and Mom went to leather (in the decorating sense). They also thought the effect was something to behold!!

Wow! You really are artistic, Brian! Alfie chewed the fringe off a rug, but here you are creating a new one on the sofa!

Well done, I say!

By the way, Sister Zoe's on the LOLSpot, but you are the subject. Let me apologize now for what I have done.

Creative fringing..amazing! Mr. Cecil, and Miss Chloe, do not have your artistic ability because Mom put sticky tape on the chairs when they were babies and they did not like it. You know, she is not very much fun.

OMC! Too funny. Iz generally keep my decorating technique to furizing ever surface moving or not moving with in a 3 foot radius. As with your fringing, I'm still waiting for the style to catch on.

Brian, that's precisely the interior decorating tip I've been trying to convince Marmie would really add some character to her apartment. She is still unimpressed.

That's not bad, Brian, but here's a tip for the future: That kind of decorating looks waaaaaaaay better on a solid color. The print hides too much of our artwork!

Creative fringing – that's pretty cool. Wish I could do some of that – but Pellie would shoot me with the water bottle if I tried.
