Last month we bought a “new” console for our living room, in a small vintage shop called Fusta’m (it is worthy of a visit if you come to Barcelona and you are into decoration and furniture). In fact it is an old kitchen cabinet, and the “evil” guys from Fusta’m restored it with new colors and materials (wooden countertop) that turned it into a must have for our home. Damaris went completely nuts for it and I have to admit that it finally was a good idea.
This last week while thinking about how to decorate it, we remembered an old plastic toy we bought in a second-hand market: an awesome Diplodocus! We both were crazy for dinosaurs when we were kids (well…let’s just say that the love has never stopped) and we thought it would be a great idea to paint it in white (because you know what they say that it’s the new black for dinosaurs) and use it as the hit decoration item in the console. His new name, now as an elegant white dinosaur, is Mr. Diplodocus, in case you were wondering.
In our home you can’t introduce a white dinosaur without the approval of our white cat, so we made an attempt to make the most proper meeting for these two beauties. Do you want to see how it all went? Check it out on the left!
Our new furniture! We also decorated it with a San Francisco map we bought during our trip. And you know what? A San Francisco post is coming very soon.
Mr. Diplodocus visiting New York, I’m sure he is searching for Cronuts.
Our first strategy: We put Juno on a chair facing his (crossing fingers here) new friend.
Although Juno knows she can’t jump into the table, she’s patiently waiting for a distraction to get on the table and smell Mr. Diplodocus.
You know that Juno is not the bravest cat on earth, after a closely eye-contact she runned away.
Finally, Damaris went to the rescue and introduced them. I think it will be a great friendship, they both share a taste for goat cheese.
