My mom is handy and resourceful. I grew up storing my magic markers in old laundry detergent bottles with the front cut out and faces drawn up on the front. Plastic grocery and ziplock bags weren’t thrown out but instead cleaned and hung on a special homemade drying rack. Mom was into reduce, reuse and recycle long before it became trendy.
So, what does a handy and resourceful woman do after she replaces all the 30 year old louvered bifold closet doors in the house? Go to the dump? Oh hell no. She makes a doggie condo silly.
The condo is under a huge tree right in the afternoon breezeway making it one of the coolest spots on the property. The inside is large enough to hold two dog beds with plenty of space to mingle. There is a floor made of capping stones with painted paw prints.
The dogs typically run free throughout the property but the condo comes in handy for those moments you need to keep them in one place for their own safety. Moi moi loves it and can often be found napping in her sanctuary on a hot afternoon.
Recycled doggie condo – hot, chain link dog kennel – not.
