almost done

When we last spoke about the foster space, mom needed to get screen doors....
 
Let's just say it's a good thing we live about .25 miles from Home Depot.

Mom tried to get there early enough on Sunday to pick everything up and avoid the "guys in trucks". While the store wasn't busy first thing in the morning, when she came out and was shoving the doors in the car, 3 different guys drove up in their trucks. Fortunately no one said anything. The opening to the hatchback is apparently smaller than mom expected (which is why she should measure, but whatever...not sure it would have made any difference). She did check with a local home improvement store about delivery....and it was $69. For that she figured she would shove them in the car.

 This is an indoor/outdoor rug. Mom says in hind sight she should have thought about just getting a bigger one and using it on the whole floor, but this works. (and it was $20 so there's that)

The screen doors are screwed together and just enough wider than the room that they wave back and forth and stand up on their own. Mom put furniture sliders on the bottom to help them move.

Mom knew that the sight lines would have to be covered to keep calm. She went to a local fabric store and found this on sale. She thought she could use thumb tacks to get the fabric to stick, but no luck. So she has one panel part up and has to run out tomorrow during her lunch to find something she can use to attach the fabric to the doors.

Cute right????

  7. The kittens will love climbing those screen doors. I'd attach the fabric outside so the kittens won't climb it, too.

    The fabric is really cute. Maybe a hall runner could finish covering your floor?

  9. Staples, from a staple gun. Pulling the fabric tight, they will hold securely. To change the fabric, use a flat screwdriver and pop 'em out. Just an idea; the fabric is adorable!

  15. For the fabric you could try Velco strips with peel and stick backing. That way you can pull it off the screen doors when it needs washing or gets too clawed. Another option would be double sided tape.

    The foster room is going to be great. I can hardly wait to see when there are foster kittens in there!

  16. that came out great.

    Peel and stick backing wouldn't wash well. You'd have to sew it on.
