I have been dying to go exterior and do some transformative work on our yard and the outside of our home, however with this climate (the rain, wind, snow, and chilly) I’m simply going to have to attend even longer. I used to be itching to work on one thing at this time, so I took some earlier than footage of a few initiatives. One in all them solely took three minutes to remodel; the opposite goes to take longer, so I am going to have to attend on the “after” picture. It took a way more time than I believed and I am not even midway finished!
Anyway, right here might be the tiniest transformation I’ve ever posted, however it made a world of distinction in one thing I used to be simply going to throw away. My cats have a number of nail scratchers (to keep away from them scratching the furnishings) and this one might be the least used. As soon as in an ideal whereas, Chick or Phoebe will really play with the ball in there, and after I put catnip on it, Estelle likes to make use of it to scratch her nails. Nonetheless, the cardboard was completely shot–there was no method it was even working for his or her nails anymore.
Earlier than I threw it away, nonetheless, I attempted to elevate the cardboard out to flip it over–it had NEVER occurred to me to attempt that earlier than!–and it was like a model new toy. It appeared good.
There was a ton of catnip beneath, too. We sprinkle catnip on high of it typically, and it clearly fell to the underside. Whereas such a small transformation, this was completely satisfying, haha.
So, that is my little transformation to share! (And I’d really feel unhealthy not throwing out this little PSA on the alternative: Please do not declaw cats! I’ve owned a LOT of cats in my life, and so long as you trim their nails occasionally and have applicable locations for them to scratch, they may go away your furnishings alone. I simply get unhappy after I hear of cats being declawed, so I like to say it after I get the chance. Okay, let’s keep on…)
Listed below are a few readers’ transformations as nicely. Take pleasure in!
This isn’t a really dramatic transformation however I used to be so sick of digging by means of my pans after I wanted one of many bigger ones on the underside. So I purchased these little pan organizers and I find it irresistible! Can simply seize and go, able to cook dinner!

I had submitted a rest room redo within the fall (Transformation Tuesday #47) and I assume I have been bitten by the bug… determined to spruce up my house workplace as nicely since I spend a lot time in there! We painted (a barely completely different shade of white, lol) and added some funky peel and stick wallpaper…. which I additionally used on the again of my million 12 months outdated bookcase to provide it new life. Some new throw pillows and a few tidying and it feels rather more welcoming!
– Krissie, Ontario, Canada
Krissie, I LOVE the wallpaper! I do not know if I would ever be courageous sufficient to attempt wallpaper (yesterday I used to be wanting by means of outdated footage from the 80s after I was a child and I could not consider the wallpaper, haha!). Yours seems to be so refined and I really like that it is solely the one wall–not overpowering. he room seems to be so cozy! -Katie
We found ants in our pantry and simply had began unloading after I thought to take an image. The most important transformation is that the second shot incorporates no critters!
