Wouldn’t be so bad to be in the dog house…

So for Christmas my husband spent endless hours working on what he called “man stuff.” Christmas morning I woke up to find this beauty. Little did I know that “man stuff” could be such a special gift.

It was the sweetest gesture for someone who is not a dog person. When I let my dogs out of the back yard they both jumped on the flatbed trailer and were checking out their new house. So did I! A dog house this nice, who wouldn’t check it out?

Once we got it unloaded and in our back yard I decided to make it a little more girly, sparkly, and personalized. Tait had told me that he was going to put my dogs names on it, but decided to wait and let me do it because he knew I’d come up with a cute way to do it. He knows the way to my heart… The perfect excuse for crafting.

I went to Wal Mart and bought some chalkboards and marker pens to write the girls names on.

I also decided that their house needed a wreath (view DIY wreath blog post for instructions on how to make a deco mesh wreath) so my dear sweet mom made them a wreath while I made their chalk board name signs. Once done I hung the wreath and signs with a simple hammer and a couple nails.

The end product turned out absolutely perfect! It was so fun to add a little glitz and glam to this fancy dog house.

  1. That is the nicest dog house I’ve ever seen! It reminds me of the ‘Bunny Bungalow’ that grandpa built for our bunnies when we lived in Las Vegas. Do you remember that? It was complete with a front porch for lounging.
