a doghouse for the boys

This "new" dog house for our boys started out as a children's playhouse that our neighbors were throwing in the trash. 

I immediately saw it as the perfect dog house in the making.

A little paint, a cute door knocker, and some TLC, and it is ready to go!


It had seen better days, but it was sturdy and the bones were good. I can't help but rescue things from the trash!


Can you see the potential?


We had to take it apart and put it back together at our house. 


I painted it Benjamin Moore Navajo White to match the trim on our house.

It is tucked in a corner behind our house with a cute little black and white striped umbrella. 



I used leftover pavers from our fire pit project as the floor, and will add an outdoor dog bed as well. 


I decided to have a little fun with the door color. I painted the door Blue Danube by Sherwin Williams, and added a cute little brass fox door knocker. 




I even put a little front porch pad outside the door. 



What do you think? I have three very happy labs who love it!


This was such a fun project, and I hope it inspires you to turn someones trash into your treasure!

xoxo
