Spoil your furry, four-legged best friend with pet furniture and accessories made with your own two hands. Here are five “pet projects” to get into:
Turn an old drawer into a bed.
An old drawer or two, a fresh coat of paint, decorations of your choice, and a stuffed burlap sack or an old cushion to serve as the bed. Get the instructions on lizmarieblog.com.
Create a dog crate.
This crate will do great as a doggie bed. Relatively easy to cobble together with several slats of wood, wood glue, and some good old-fashioned nails and a hammer. Use non-toxic paint if you want some color. Get the instructions on shanty-2-chic.com.
Make a sidetable he can sleep in.
It's a cozy nook for your dog that doubles as a side table. Takes a bit of carpentry know-how, but it's something you can boast about and use as an accent piece in your living room. Get the instructions on thisoldhouse.com.
Give him a private potty park.
It's your dog's very own "potty park" -- ideal for apartments, condos, or any home sans lawn or garden. All you need is a 4-by-4-feet peg board turned into a shallow plot of soil. Finish off with two rolls of sod grass. Get the instructions on superdogscharliepants.blogspot.com.
Framed dog paw
It's your dog’s very own “autograph.” While it is not, per se, for your dog, it's a nifty decorative piece BY your doy. It's simple enough. Get your dog to sit and place his paw on an ink pad, or brush it over with non-toxic acrylic paint. Place his paw on a piece of paper to make the imprint. Wash or wipe dry his paw, then go back to your project. With a pencil, write his name in the lettering style you prefer. Do it over with a pen or an ink brush. Finally, have
the imprint framed or insert it in a pre-made photo frame. Source:edytadecoracion.blogspot.com
