A Dog-Friendly DIY

Oh, the things we do for our beloved pets. Isn’t this sweet little DIY the perfect gift for your grown dog?

With a pair of old, antique chairs, rubber lining and a few pet dishes, you can finally give Fido a seat at the table. Even better? It’s the perfect height for medium-to-large sized dogs, so no more back pain for the pups when bending over to eat from the floor!

Sure, it’s a stretch, but I think this project is charming and sweet. (And you know we love our dogs around here!) What about you guys? Seen any pet-friendly DIY ideas that you can’t wait to try in your own home? Spill it below!

Lucas Maassen’s Incompletely Beautiful Furniture

Cute alert: Lucas Maassen recently hired his children to help him paint and finish some of his furniture designs, but labor laws restrict the children from working more than three hours a week. The result? “Incompletely beautiful” and largely unfinished pieces that are as unique and custom as they are endearing.

What an adorable way to show your children the value of a dollar – and let the community benefit! Hats off to you, Lucas & sons!

DIY: A Stenciled Pillow

I’m a sucker for a good DIY, but with my less-than-crafty skills, it’s gotta be an easy one. Luckily, this genius DIY stencil pillow from Wit & Whistle is right up my alley – and gorgeous to boot!

Inspired by the $159 version from Vivaterra, Amanda turned an average pillow case into a sweet and sentimental souvenir for her favorite song lyrics. Better yet? The materials needed are little more than stencils, a marker and some cardboard!

Even I can do that! Genius.
