the Fox Hole

On Sunday Alex and I finally stepped up to the plate and tackled a project we’d been talking about for probably a year.

Saci sleeps in a medal kennel that resides next to our bed. It’s been a constant eye sore ever since we brought her home and the Star Wars sleeping bag that was draped over it was no longer cutting it design-wise.

So we went to Home Depot, bought some MDF board that we had custom cut while there, bought an electric drill/screwdriver (finally), and came home to start on our project.

Alex was mostly in charge of building it while I held things in place and then we both painted it “Pensive Sky” the subtle blue wall color that we already have in our bedroom. And the paint was leftover from painting the walls a year and a half ago so we didn’t have to buy more. Score.

Once dry I went online here to find a cool graphic that I could just free hand onto the piece of furniture. Because Saci has fox ears I went with this and I think it turned out splendidly. I just used the accent wall color that we have on the wall behind the piece in “Painted Turtle” and mixed an orangey-red hue with some acrylic paints I had laying around.

We now call her new abode The Fox Hole :-)
