PW Report: Fit for a Princess

This is Frances, our beloved orange tabby. When she's not outside, she spends most of her time sleeping in my studio on an old, fuzz-covered kitty condo. Honestly, this navy monstrosity was cramping my style, so I decided to cover it with some beautiful Amy Butler fabric for this week's Project Wednesday. After all, our little Frances is worth it!!

This kitty condo isn't your typical condo. It comes apart in four pieces. Three round pieces that make up the "floors" and one long band piece that makes up the "walls." I deconstructed the condo and covered the long band piece first just like I did when I made our canvas headboard. After securing the fabric with a staple gun, I cut out the holes and stapled. For the top piece, I added some batting to make a nice little pillow and covered it with the same fabric. The result:

I'm not sure if Frances likes it, but I think that it matches her very nicely!!
