After a couple of hours and a trip to Lowe’s, we have successfully installed a hanging pot rack! And by “we”, I mostly mean Gene. He was a trooper, going up and down the ladder, marking and remarking, drilling and raising. I’m sure his neck is sore from looking up for so long but we … More Hanging pot rack
While deciding what to do yesterday, we discussed the idea of setting up a catio, something I’ve been wanting to do for Pippin since we got the house (a cat door has been sitting in our closet for some time).

Gene cut the wood in half, I wrapped the sisal rope around each piece and boom, scratching posts. One is now nailed to the wall in the den … More Homemade scratching post
