As far back as I can remember, my family always had pets. I had three West Highland White Terriers when my husband and I married - and shortly thereafter, we adopted our cat, Randy.
Having three dogs and a cat can make keeping a house tidy a little difficult. So we decided they it would be fun if they had designated playrooms of their own.
So we set out to create a dog room for our Westies - converting an unused portion of our basement. I handpainted their door just to make it cuter!
And then we got busy painting the ugly cinder block and installing the drywall and flooring to finish the room...
Once the walls were done, it was time to paint! I choose a fun apple green color...and did paw print and bone Wallies across the walls! Then I hung my favorite photos of the dogs:
I took an ordinary, inexpensive plaid tab valance and made some Westie and a black cat embellishments to attach on it to finish off their window.
And we mounted a bin on their wall to hold their toys that I painted with another Westie.
I bought a fire hydrant that my husband mounted to the wall for decoration...
And we installed a little cat door at the bottom of their door so Randy could get in and out...
I handpainted the "Cats use back door" above it.
And we made a bone-shaped paper towel holder to clean up accidents!
And then we designed and decorated a cat playroom for Randy!
We found a cute cat border for the walls. My husband built the carpeted, cat house (with multi-levels!) and then I decorated it with black cat rugs, decor, and lots and lots of kitty toys!
(can you see Randy on his rug??)
If you have the space, pet playrooms are the purrfect solution to keep pet toys and clutter in a confined space while giving your beloved furry friends a place all their own to explore and play!
