I am so excited about this post!  I knew the moment we moved into our home last fall that I needed to find a cute dog crate to act as an end table to give our Boston Terrier a place to relax in the family room.  I spent quite some time looking for the perfect one, and even priced out how much it would be to have a guy make one for me, then I found this beauty! I LOVED the detail on the door, it just wasn't the right colors... But I knew that could be changed.

Here is the "BEFORE" picture.  It was painted a dark espresso color.  It was cute this way, but I knew I could make it really make a statement!

I knew it wouldn't be too hard because I made sure that assembly was required.  I took the pieces out of the box and had some fun spray painting.  It only took me an afternoon.


 
I went with a black + white theme and I made the hardware gold.  I LOVE how the door now fully stands out and makes such a statement!

 It's safe to say he loves it!  Yay! 
 I sure love my sweet General Sam Houston the 2nd.

I have always loved these cute little dog sculptures, I thought this was the perfectly appropriate spot to have one in my home.

  1. LOVE this! I've been looking for a dog crate for my 2 mini-dachshunds. Think I'm going to get this one and copy your white border - it's so cute! I did read that the lock doesn't work very well...have you experienced this? Would you recommend the crate?
    Thanks!
