Over the years I've been hired to paint some odd things.
And I've had my fair share of odd clients.
But this is my first cat.
This has certainly been a tail to remember.
Firstly because it makes me giggle.
Secondly because I appreciate that my client wanted
his "ugly plastic litter box" restyled into a swanky privacy chamber.
I also love how this job demonstrates what
is possible with Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint.
his blue and white laundry room.
Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint in Flow Blue seemed the obvious choice!
The day I began working on this custom job I had been using
Autentico Chalk Paint in the colour Provence.
so I started off with a quick coat since my brush was ready to go.
Chalk Paint works fantastically as a primer
working to cut the shiny white plastic.
Milk Paint with Bonding Agent would've done this as well,
I used what was on hand...or should I say paw?
Adding Bonding Agent to the Flow Blue paint for additional insurance
the paint would adhere to the shiny plastic surface.
My work experience girl Amazing Anna did the honours...
Because what high school girl doesn't dream of painting
litter boxes as part of her job?!
How puuurrrrfect is this colour?
Knowing this custom-painted privacy chamber is going into a blue and white room --
I tested White Wax on the finish and sent my
feline-in-charge this photo for review.
Both he and his human were smitten-kittens with the finish
and gave it a four-paws-up approval.
The result was a stonewashed, denim-y
look that made my client purr with delight and gave
this litter box an additional nine lives.
I think I may need to collect payment in meows & purrs...
and a few furry cuddles.
