Reno/Demo at Cat Seto!

Sorry for being MIA lately... We've got our hard hats on over at the studio/boutique and doing some exciting renovations to the space. We've been covered in dust (our cupcakes too!) and the team has been navigating by hop scotching over paint buckets and dry wall. I'll be sure to post up the results when it's finished but in the meantime here are some photos of the mess...

Ping Pong Chic

Every Asian family I knew growing up had a ping pong table in their house. It didn't matter how small the house was...somewhere, in the basement squeezed between the beams and bookcases or in the garage two inches away from the car was the ping pong table. This Puma version via Aruliden with a chalkboard surface takes the cake for style and might earn its placement front and center!
