HOW TO DIY DOGIFY YOUR HOME

When you love your puppy pals as much as we do, they leave a lasting impression in your home. However, it might not always be the kind that we like. There are a few distinct markers in any dog owner’s home. Doggy hair, bones and sticks, balls and toys, a chewed-up shoe or a pawprint or two. While we wouldn’t change a thing about our beloved friends, if your living space is looking more fur than flair, then it may be time to change it up! Take a look at our DIY home decor tips for some stylish dogspiration.

 


 

HOUSE KEY HOLDER

Misplace your pup’s lead as often as you lose your keys? Give them pride of place and save the search with some rustic wooden slates that make a gorgeous key rack at the entrance to your home. Customise with antique hooks and creative hand painted names.

 

WOODEN DESIGNER DOGGY BED

If you love the look of upcycled home furniture, do the same for your doggo’s favourite place to snooze. Wooden pallets make great bed bases and can be fixed up and sanded down to create an original and attractive doggy bed. Add a hand-sewn fabric mattress or blanket for that extra special touch.

 

GONE PACKING TO PUPPY PARADISE?

Another ingenious doggy bed idea is this super simple vintage leather case, converted into a puppy paradise. Great for smaller breeds that love to curl up; just strap in their favourite blanket, attach some fun and quirky images to the inner suitcase lining and you have puppy sleep chic. If only we could really pack them up and take them on every travel adventure!

 

DOGGY PHOTO FRAMES

People love to display their family in frames and our pups are undoubtedly significant members of ours. Creating personalised artwork in your home is a sophisticated way to showcase your furry family. You can get artsy with hand painted and pressed pawprints or hang original photo enlargements to add some woof to your walls.

 

UPCYCLE THOSE POTS!

Give your standard dog bowls a facelift by fitting them to various sized pot planters. With endless colours and styles of planters to choose from you can let your creative talent run free. This doggy décor trick is quick and easy - a DIYers dream.

 

TREAT JARS!

Cookie jars for our pooches? Yes please! Storage for our WAG treats should get those tails and tongues wagging. Find inspiration with a second-hand mason jar or alternative container, and jazz it up. Get wild with figurines, ribbons, custom stickers and paint, to dogify your home accents. ‘Treaties’ is after all our favourite word in the doggy language.
