Well actually first they looked like this. Until I got my DIY-lovin' little hands on them.
I'm like a PETA sort at the animal shelter...except my obsession is furniture and objets d'art. Just kidding. I'm a big ol' animal lover. But I do find it easier and more socially acceptable to continually adopt furniture and small inanimate treasures than I do to be constantly bringing home new pets.
So I did.
