our farmhouse-inspired dog crate

Hey friends! Happiest of Monday's, and I hope you had a weekend so great that it makes Monday feel not-so-bad!

Kyle and I finally finished our farmhouse-inspired dog crate that we have been working on for months now! Our dog, Sophia, has been in need of new house for a while now. We had been using one of those old metal ones that is very unflattering in the terms of it's looks, but functional overall. I asked Kyle to design and build something (he's seriously the most talented woodworker ever, you guys) that looks nice enough that we could leave in the living room full time, but still keeps Sophia contained.

So, he came up with this:




Isn't it gorgeous?! I am so unbelievably in love with it. It fits my style (and our home) perfectly, and our dog loves it. Okay, she doesn't love being "in bed", but she doesn't mind being in there when she does have to be in it.


I still need to decorate the left side of that area. I'm thinking a homemade bench that can double as seating in our living room, and maybe some sort of greenery.... and I think I'm going to do some faux shiplap or pretty wallpaper on this wall... and I want to do some more decorating in the open wall area... Yikes. Sorry. I'll slow the idea train down a bit. :)

Anyway. I'm obsessed. It's one of my new favorites in our home!




Also, I'm having a blast updating on our home reno's and projects, and I hope you are loving it, too! :)

Have a lovely Monday!

  1. Oh my goodness that is GORGEOUS!! I wish we had one of these for our little doggie. It's so much better looking than the ugly metal crate that we have for her in the bathroom!
