My husband went out and bought our dog a crate without me. He came home with a huge crate that is at least twice as big as what our dog needs. She sleeps in her own private condo! It is big, black and ugly, and sits in our living room. I decided I needed to make it look pretty, so I created a slipcover for it. I covered the top half in a dark chocolate brown fabric and then made a really full ruffle skirt with a French script printed fabric. To keep it from shifting I added large satin ribbon and attached the slipcover to her crate with pretty bows.
Here is Shelby in her new crate.
The next thing I want to do is get several vintage suitcases to stack on top of her crate. I’ll use them to conceal all of her treats, toys, and accessories. I also want to matt and frame a few pictures of our pooch and hang them above her domain. This one below is definitely being framed. It’s one of my favorite pics of Shelby with her daddy. She loves him so much!!
