Yes Tatou has taken over our lives and our home. It is littered with puppy toys and leashes, schedules and you name it. Things were all over the place till I remembered that I had a piece of plywood and decided to do some housecleaning.
It was time to take matters into my DIY hands and create a command center for my dog! I never in a million years expected to be doing a project like this. Haha!
What I Used:
- A piece of plywood which seems to be covered with laminate
- Chalky Type Paint in White
- Clear Wax Finish
- 2 double prong Robe Hooks
- 2 Milk White Barrel Glass Knob & Oil Rubbed Bronze Coat Hook (similar)
- a brown plastic bin
- A clipboard
- various screws and eye screws
- chip brush
The next step was to decide on the placement of the hooks and so forth. I thought about adding the galvanized metal planter and painting it but it looked too flimsy.
I had gotten the white hooks with white screws but the board was too slim so I ended up using these screws instead. I can always paint them to make them blend in. I really love the huge variety of hook that D. Lawless Hardware has for sale.
I used three black screws to attach the plastic bin.
And of course I needed a place for the clipboard which I got at the Dollar Tree, for his daily medicine schedule. It’s like having a baby in the house. Haha! I really wasn’t expecting that. Now my kids call me Tatou’s grandma!
Isn’t it a beauty? The milk glass makes a striking contrast to that warm bronze. I even painted the edges of the wood a similar warm brown color.
I need to work out the details on this. Maybe place it behind the front door and change out the bin. It is very pretty and practical but way too bulky for behind the front door. I’ll keep you posted if I make any changes.
I was able to create this practical command center for my dog with the help of D. Lawless Hardware’s great selection of products. Go over and check them out, there is so much to choose from.
Do you have a command center for your pet? Or am I the only pet grandma who has gone crazy over her pet?
