Yea y’all read that right! I am going to makeover our doggie room!
When we built our house we had an area that was supposed to be a small closet, but after looking closer at our plans we realized this would be a great dog room!
One thing with building a home is ensuring you make good use of all of your space. I mean what’s the point of an area of your home that is just empty space?
Below is the original layout of the downstairs. The area in blue would have just been empty space. In front of that empty space was to be a small closet. We decided to get rid of the empty and dedicate the entire area to a room for the dogs. This was actually a perfect plan because the dog kennels fit great under the stairs.
When you walk in the room you go straight back and then to the left is the spot under the stairs. The ceiling in the back of the room is around 5 ft tall and the area under the stairs maybe 3 ft.
- Left over peel and stick wallpaper from Roommates. It is a white faux brick.
- Antique frames from Goodwill
- Chalk paint
- Sanding paper
- Pictures of each dog
- And a new doggy bed
- Typed up doggy quote on regular printer paper
If you follow me on IG then you know I have a slight addiction to vintage goodwill frames 😭. I had 5- 8×10 frames that were perfect to use for the doggie pictures and then 3 small antique prints that I love and wasn’t sure what to do with.
CLEANING and APPLYING PEEL AND STICK: I started by getting everything cleaned out of the room and then wiped down the walls. I then applied this peel and stick wallpaper from Roomates. I only did the back wall so it didn’t take much! Peel and stick is super easy to apply.
I sent the photos to the photo lab to be developed and then started on my frames. I took the frames apart, cleaned them, and then painted them with a white chalk paint. I applied 2 coats and then sanded down the areas that I wanted the gold to show through.
QUOTE FROM THE DOGS: I typed up a corny little saying from the pups and printed it off and added it to a 11×13 frame.
PUTTING IT TOGETHER: Now to get all of their doggy portraits and the vintage prints hung. Then we just added the new doggy bed and an large indoor/ outdoor rug that can be thrown in the washer.
There ya go!!! Adorable doggie decor!!
