Cottage Style Trim

Brian finished the closet baseboards (they match our existing baseboards, yay!) and the trim around the doors and cubby holes yesterday…

He brought the cutest little helper with him too…

He was a little less camera shy than his Dad, so I went all paparazzi on him for a minute. He just giggled alot….

…and blew me away with his mad carpentry skills (#SoAwesome)…and called me ma’am. (#SweetSouthernBoy)

And speaking of sweet, Southern boys…

I’m happy to report that Kit-Cat is using his litter box again. Turns out he wasn’t afraid of the lid after all. It was the cat litter deodorizer, baking powder stuff you sprinkle in with the litter. I usually sprinkle it in the pan before I add fresh litter, but that particular week I made the mistake of just sprinkling it on top of his litter. Kit-Cat no likey to walk-y on the sprinkle-y. I gave his pan a quick shake the day I published that last post, and he immediately started using his litter box again.

Guess he’s just a powderless paw kinda cat.

    Hi Layla!
    Writing from Calgary, Alberta! Just wanted to let you know how much I love your blog and what a huge inspiration it has been to me….especially for future decorating endeavors. Basically, you have given me the courage to just GO FOR IT! On that note, I did…..I forced my poor hubby to rip pout the carpet with me and install a new cork floor in our master bedroom and also to rip out all the baseboard and trim (which was actually quite nice)….because my DREAM is to have big, tall, clean line baseboard like yours :-) I can’t seem to find anything about the installation in detail, or what is needed….would you mind giving me a few tips/some info, so we can try our hand at it? Forever grateful,
