Ok so here are a couple of projects that I recently finished. First Ali's dog bed. We got her a new round pouf but she really doesn't like it (she likes to stretch out). She gets really happy whenever we bring the old uggo one out, I hate the thing but Justin seems to think our dog's comfort is of some importance. As a compromise I drove on down to Michael Levine bought some faux bois fabric and made a cover out of something I think I can live with. I wish I could have found a fabric just a touch darker so it really blends in with the floor. (umm ignore how dirty I let the wall get in the before photo...eww on me)
Next the bench. I bought this old bench a few years back with the intention of fixing it up, only I didn't really know how to go about it. Instead of researching wood stains and all that jazz (it's really poorly made why waste my time) I took the black paint left over from the teepee design and just painted the thing and sprayed the legs with Krylon spray paint in matte back. I think it gives the little guy new life. One more step in the process of making my home less frumpy and one more thing I get to check off the list!
...I love lists...
