Pet Champion 8 Inch Sand Coated Wood Perch for Small Birds ~ Review

''The Pet Champion Sand Coated Wood Perch is ideal for small birds. The Pet Champion Sand Coated Wood Perch can easily be installed in almost any cage or aviary. Each Pet Champion sanded perch provides a safe place for your bird to stand or hang out. These sanded perches feature an 8in area that is covered in a fine sand material that offers superior grip to prevent accidental slips. These perches help to keep your feathered friend's nails clean, trim and tidy meaning that you have less maintenance work to do. The Sanded Perches feature a 1 inch in diameter. The pet champion sand coated wood perch installs without the use of any tools. PRODUCT CONSIDERATION: Will need wire cage to attach perch''


The Pet Champion Sand Coated Wood Perch is perfect for my Rose Breasted Cockatoo (Galah).

She stands on it more than her other wood perches. The sand keeps her nails from being sharp – a big plus. Attaches to cage easily and securely by hand. Sturdy and strong.

Fresh & Soothing Odor Control Refreshing Shampoo ~ Review


 Fresh & Soothing Odor Control Refreshing Shampoo for Pets surprised me. It has the freshest fragrance I've ever encountered that lasts long. It lathers nicely and is easily rinsed. It contains oatmeal that soothes that itchy dry skin mine get in the Summer. I have to admit, not only to they smell better than coming from the groomers but their coat feels cleaner and softer too.

Plain Jane Table to Bright and Beautiful


All the projects I had planned on doing this Summer were delayed by the above three!
Our house had become so quiet, losing 2 of our cats ages 20 and 22, one last December and the other this March. Then very unexpectedly, losing our American Staffordshire, 9, just a month later.
 
Not sure what I was thinking rescuing 3 puppies! I usually rescue around a year old.
All 3 within a month's time! A little black and white Terrier mix, a brindle unknown (vet won't even hazard a guess!) and a Corgi.
What a handful. I have more baby gates up now than I ever did with any of my kids! 

Anyway I digress, my oldest son had bought new furniture, the old was being sent to the dumps ~ but not before I got a look!!  Grabbed a recliner, the table above, a large bench and a personal refrigerator.  All but the refrigerator need some love, ie projects.

I started with the table in the above photo.
 It was all white with crayon and marker accents ;)
I had taken before photos but I changed carriers, buying a new phone and there go my photos  GRRR  Completely forgot I hadn't retrieved them.

I tightened all the wobbly joints to make it solid again.
I painted the legs with Hello Hobby Chalk Paint in aqua.
I've never used Unicorn Spit and really wanted to try it.
Figured the top of this rescued piece would be perfect.


I taped newspaper all the way around the edges to protect the Chalk Paint.
 I used Zia Teal, Purple Hill Majesty and White Ning Unicorn Spit.
Not sure what I was doing, I squirted some on and used my fingers to swirl it around. 
Wasn't too crazy about the swirls, so I "played" a bit and ended up making lines then blended the colors so they weren't so definite. I had a bowl of water nearby to dip my fingers in when needed to help move and blend the colors.


once it was dry I painted the edges with black craft paint.

The whole time I worked on this table I kept feeling like I was being watched.
Finally figured out who had their eyes on me ~~



I'm sure they thought they were going to be fed.


Once everything was thoroughly dry, I put 3 coats of  Marine Spar Varnish over the Unicorn Spit.  I wanted it to be protected well, my younger son would be using it.


I used a sponge brush to apply the Varnish, I wanted to be able to toss it when I was done. 
I found that the sponge would make bubbles in the Varnish.
Once the whole top was covered in Varnish, I found if I went over it with the side of the sponge brush it didn't leave any bubbles.

I then applied a clear Wax over the Chalk Paint.


 It was fun using the Unicorn Spit.
I really like the way it turned out.

The next project will be reupholstering the bench,
but that probably won't be until next Spring.
These puppies keep me hopping!
