With dogs on the brain, I have been discovering lots of crafty, up-cycling pooch related projects which are beginning to convince me that a dog would help inspire my creativity... and is therefore a necessity.
I found this make shift dog basket here on Better Homes and Garden's 'Furniture Transformations' slide show... it used to be a bedside table! Everything else on the slideshow is pretty inspiring too...
A crochet garland for above the dog's basket... awww. It would probably start to smell quite bad quite quickly but at least it looks pretty! I found this on Bees and Appletrees blog here
And what dog is complete without a custom made lead?! The how-to was found on Purl Bee's blog here.
Ok, before you think I've gone barking mad I'll stop.
(but for the record this is the one I want!)
