Throwback Thursday: Our DIY for the dog kennel!

Answered
We had our dog kennel sitting in the kitchen, the first thing you see when you come in the back door, our primary entrance...so we remodeled the kitchen around it! We gained a new countertop that we found at Habitat for Humanity Restore, painted the existing moveable island and built it in. Here is the dog kennel part...

    Thank you! This cabinet was the first that I painted just to see if I could! It turned out so nice we did the whole kitchen, which lead to the transformation of the whole first floor :) All because of our dog, gotta love her!

    That looks awesome!! I made something similar to hide a litter box in a bedroom. I bought a large deck storage box and cut an opening at one end. I have enough room inside for a fairly large litter box and a carpet in front of the 'door'. I also have another little rug when they step out of the box. Works great and no one knows there's a litter box inside of it. Just looks like a bench.
