A Library Sneak Peak… in the Dressing Room

Remember my new, plain, wardrobe doors?

They have finally been painted:

I tried to get this picture under varying light and flash conditions, but I couldn’t get the colours quite right, not even in my graphic application. The paint is just about exactly the same rich honey colour as the base colour of all the oak cabinetry. The new cabinetry doesn’t blend in, but at least it doesn’t jar. I might one day, as a weekend project, do a faux oak finish on all the new cabinetry, so I’ll at least have the right base colour for that. For now, Donna agrees with me that the paint is a vast improvement over the mishmash of finishes I used to have!

How is this a sneak peak for the library? Hmm…

Kitchen Preview

The rig looks like a tornado blew through it and I still have some painting to do in the library and dressing room, but, but… the kitchen is done. I’m feeling a little dazed at the thought.

I’m going to do a proper before and after of my wonderfully functional RV kitchen, but I just had to provide a sneak peak tonight! Just call me a tease. 😀

Feline Intelligence

I wish I’d been able to capture on video what just happened because no one is going to believe me.

For some time now, I’ve occasionally caught the tap in the dressing room leaking. One morning, I was woken up by the water pump jack-hammering away telling me that a tank that had been half-full the night before was now suspiciously empty (actually only a third full). I thought it was time to change the washer or even replace the whole faucet.

This leaking has occasionally coincided with my catching Neelix in the sink with his mouth open to catch the drips of water that is colder and fresher than what’s in his bowl.

After this began to happen more and more often, I put two and two together. The tap isn’t faulty. Neelix is nudging it open. Remember that it’s a single, lift-up faucet:

Tonight, I noticed him jump onto the vanity and decided to watch. Sure enough, he nudged the the tap open with his little noggin’ and then sat there drinking his fill!

So, replacing the faucet in the dressing room to a cat-proof model needs to be added to my to-do list. *sighs*
