Pet Project - "Doggie Cottage"

The doggies sleep in their crate at night. They like to be in our room, close by.
But the accommodations left much to be desired.
The doggie crate before. Not very welcoming. Not very attractive.
It didn't go with the decor. Too much shabby and no chic.

So we cut an old piece of plywood for a top. Added trim to the edge. Painted it white and placed it on top. I added cafe curtains using wooden dowels attached to cup hooks under the top.

Much better!

Even the doggies like it better. They go in on their own at night and almost make it until morning when we let them up on the bed.


  1. Oh my goodness, this is just the sweetest idea! Love it! It looks perfect in your bedroom!

  2. I have a cage just like that for Chloe. I love what you did...thinking that I might have to do that to her cage. Thanks for the inspiration.

  3. sweet. I bet she loves it. I might have to make one for my little Rosie.

  4. wow! such a lucky dog! pretty bed it seems! very girly one!

  5. Ingenious! I bet your pups love their new, fancy sleeping quarters.

    Wish I'd thought of that back when we had our sweet doggy sleeping in her crate.
