I Built a Castle in the Middle of the Night


Last night I decided to do something with the two boxes in the middle of my living room. They are my cat’s boxes and they take up a lot of room and look messy. Messy like I’ve just been throwing stuff all over the place kind of messy. Now one might say, “Jess you could just get rid of the boxes then they won’t be on your floor, duh” but I decided to do something crazy. Crazy cat lady actually.

20140716-082153-30113429.jpg Here are the boxes in question already in construction. The small box he likes to sit in, and the large box he likes to play in.

20140716-082355-30235190.jpg I have created a roof! All I’m using is double sided tape. If I use regular packaging tape it won’t look as nice and my cat will eat it. He has odd culinary tastes. Also I don’t have any extra cardboard so I’m using the pieces I cut off the box to build up the box.

20140716-082643-30403492.jpg I made a fancy door. Almost done!

20140716-082713-30433995.jpg Now I’ve taped and inserted the small box into the big box to create a balcony of sorts.

20140716-082823-30503498.jpg After painting it black for a dramatic effect, I added draw strings. It’s finished!

20140716-082908-30548276.jpg Now to test it!

As a painter and artist I find it hard sometimes to not take my work too seriously, so I created this blog! I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I do. In the mean time, if you are curious as to what else I draw, check out my online portfolio, http://jessicacaissie.com/
