Cat Hell™️ Part 17: great news, the neverending pantry makeover project continues to toss curveballs at me and expects me to field them like a kitten playing with cotton balls (don’t @ me, the metaphor made sense in my head) 🐈 After a brief bender on the east coast, we’re back to shuffling the ikea cabinets around yet again thanks to my innate inability to appropriately plan for renovation projects while also STILL painting every surface in my life purple, memorizing TTPD and generally regret...
✨Cat Hell™️✨ Part 16: the long awaited follow up to the cabinetry debacle! Sorry not sorry to leave you with a cliffhanger over whether the storage actually fits in the pantry project… after a bit of jenga, we have success! Well, until the DIY gods sent another curveball my way approximately 12.5 seconds later 🙃 I know you’ve been waiting with bated breath about the lighting, so I’m pleased to report we’ve started the installation 💡 let me know what you think of the latest update + stay tune...
Ok picture this: running through a train station, definitely late for our train, and I holler to Sean that I forgot to record the voiceover for today’s new Cat Hell™️ episode as approximately 19,532 strangers turn and stare. So in lieu of a fresh video, you get this behind the scenes peek and the promise of maybe a new video tomorrow. And if you saw me in 30th St. Station, no you didn’t 👀
✨Cat hell™️✨ Part 15: the cabinets will fit… right? Listen I’m not trying to leave you on a cliffhanger, but YEAH I AM 😏 if there’s one question I’ve been asked during this entire root cellar/pantry makeover, it’s how confident I am that the shelving will actually fit down there… This week I’m in the final push (I friggin hope) to get most of the big things crossed off the punch list before we leave for the East coast next week. Will I ever finish painting? Will the lighting be bright enough?...
✨Cat Hell™️✨ Part 14: The Meltdown 🫠 did you think we’d end up 14 episodes (and a music video) deep into this pantry makeover project? Cuz I certainly did NOT. Like for real, I am blown away by how ridiculous this pantry-meets-root-cellar project has become 😮‍💨 My latest efforts are a bit all over the place: great success with online vintage shopping, questionable Amazon purchases, and maybe a lesson (finally) learned? (But probably not) Let me know what you think of this update and what ques...
✨cat hell✨ part 3: actually emptying the cellar! I finally removed these shelves (and learned about their questionable structural integrity) and honestly think they were a big contributor to the overall stinky vibes since they were made with a porous material. Now that the space is empty, I’m a bit shocked by how much better it already smells — and I haven’t even started cleaning yet! I’m trying to take my time with this project so as not to burn out. Usually I left the ADHD run wild, but for...
✨Cat Hell✨ Part 2: The Reckoning 😱 but first WOW THANK YOU for all the love and support on my first video about this new renovation project of mine (and welcome to any new followers 🥹)! I was so hesitant to post about this room, it’s been our secret shame for the past 3 years, impacting whether we could have guests and if we could even store food things safely in our home. And I appreciate all of the odor removal tips, keep ‘em coming! Now the next step in turning this stinky cellar into the ...
✨Cat Hell✨ Part 13: it’s giving pure, unadulterated, unfiltered, unhinged chaos. At this point I’m praying to the DIY gods and promising that I’ll finish the bathroom tile (lol) if they will PLEASE just let me finish this project without more mishaps. So about my moisture problems… We have a few contributing factors that created the perfect storm: 1. we heat our home with a wood stove and don’t have other heat sources, but when spring comes, we stop — aka we just don’t heat our home and inste...
✨Cat Hell™️✨ part 9: assembling the IKEA cabinets! Before anyone gets salty, I know I know I KNOW I said I’d reveal the paint today, but then I was editing this and literally ran out of time — as in Instagram won’t let me post a longer video. SO PAINT REVEAL TOMORROW I SWEAR 🫣 I thought I was being clever using these bookshelves as low profile pantry storage, but the only thing low profile at the moment is my patience 💀 Sean made a comment today about how much this project has spiraled out of...
Cat Hell™️ part 8.5 micro update 😝 I couldn’t leave you hanging! A lot of progress is happening behind the scenes, like attempting to paint *everything* on the one sunny day we’ve had all week, navigating the -ahem- perils of painting outdoors, and patiently explaining to my charming husband that I can, indeed, figure it out myself. MAJOR update coming tomorrow… including PAINT COLOR REVEAL. Stay tuned and leave a comment telling me what color you think I ultimately chose! #pantrymakeover #pa...
Cat Hell™️ Part 5: The Cleansing 😅 welcome back and thanks for your patience as I was up to my elbows in enzyme cleaners for the past week (a joke but not really)!Major progress was achieved in my quest to turn the grossest room in our house into the pantry and root cellar of my dreams — wait til you see the end of this video! Leave a comment letting me know what you think and what I should share next for this pantry makeover project 😘 #pantry #pantrymakeover #larder #rootcellar #renovationre...
✨Cat Hell✨ Part 10: paint color REVEAL! 🍷💃 did you guess the paint color correctly??? Not gonna lie, I almost posted this in black and white as a tease, but you’re along for the journey not just the reveal — right?? I feel like the biggest contributor to my purrfect pantry makeover is my new cordless sprayer from @gracohomeownersprayers (which they so kindly sent to me)— not only is it satisfying af to use, but it’s saved me loads of time and energy that I can put elsewhere, like changing my...
✨Cat Hell✨ Part 12: how much more is this project going to throw at me??? (but for real) 😒 this update truly brings the chaos and for that, I’m sorry not sorry. This pantry makeover project has spiraled out of control and this update is only the latest in a string ridiculous problems I’ve had finishing this project. ARE WE SURPRISED AT THIS POINT? What’s the issue now? Moisture! And who could have guessed it in a partially subterranean space in the Pacific Northwest 🙃 (if you comment that you...
Cat Hell™️ Part 7: The Spray Foam Debacle of 2024 🤦‍♀️ BUT FIRST, my responses to your paint recommendations for my pantry makeover! As in, some of you seem to operate under the impression that I’m not trying to do as little work as possible for this space. Y’all are out here suggesting stripes and accent walls and pops of color inside the cabinets... and I’m just trying to color drench in peace and move onto gardening season so I can be an outdoor cat again ✌️ Jokes aside, I am so grateful t...
Cat Hell™️ Part 6: Something actually fun… PAINT COLORS! 🎨 your help is desperately needed because I am nothing if not an indecisive Pisces… which paint color from my besties @dunnedwardsdura should I choose to color drench my new pantry & root cellar?? There’s a helpful poll or leave a comment on this post! I’m really torn: do I choose my fave color (mustardy yellow)? Do I play it safe with another cool-toned blue?? OR do I tear a page out of @sgardnerstyle’s book and run with my current col...
✨Cat Hell™️✨ part 8: the IKEA trip! I took a week off to celebrate my birthday and because the sun came out — and I simply cannot be in this subterranean hole while the sun is out! PNW problems 🤣 after many hours of planning the pantry storage, we ventured to IKEA to pick up my order (lol), test my marriage and get a light snack… and naturally, chaos ensued cuz why wouldn’t it?? Now that everything is home, it’s officially time for the pantry makeover task I’ve been dreading the most (yes mor...
✨Cat Hell✨ part 11: will I ever be finished painting?? All signs point to no and at this point I’m a bit punch drunk about it 🙃 I’ve gone Full Dexter™️ in this episode in order to paint every itty bitty crevasse of this cellar/pantry situation the purrfect shade of plummy purple (Wine Goblet by @dunnedwardsdura - use code JOJO15 for 25% off💁‍♀️) and it genuinely feels like this project is dragging on forever. Taking 8.5 days off probably didn’t help, but my sciatica was like plz ma’am. I’m so...
Meet ✨Cat Hell✨ my latest renovation project where I plan to transform the grossest, smelliest room maybe ever into the root cellar meets pantry of my dreams! Have I finished any of my other projects? No! Did I start this project without a plan? Yes! Am I embarrassed to even be sharing this space on the internet? YES. Follow along for the usual shenanigans, some (hopefully) genius small space storage hacks and what could possibly be most unexpected paint color I’ve ever chosen — and leave a ...
