    Ohh! I thought of something else. I’m going to steal this but instead of using cut-out black dots, I’m going to use a cut out of cat’s paw prints and use those as a template.

    Would you believe I never thought I could paint my Bekvam? I have two and this is going to be my summer project. They look far better painted and I like the fresh, retro polka dots.

    This is really cute! I’d love it in my pin-up themed kitchen
