Gone to the Dogs...

9:47:00 AM

This is our dog Kody... not real smart but very lovable!

 And this is Kirby, the alpha dog, queen of the dog world.

This is where they hang out, under my garden bench.
(Luckily I'm not using it at present due to 2' of snow!)

Right now this is where we keep their dog food and frankly, I want my pot back.

This was my grandfather's shoe shine box... I don't know the history but I know he used it to shine his shoes.

Once upon a time it had this on the top:

 The horse now has a proud place on my mantel.

 ...anyway, the box was spending too much time in my basement so I decided it was time to do something new with it.
It started out getting a coat of white paint... 
(when in doubt, paint it white!)

Next I printed out the words "un chien" on my computer.
(loose translation: dog)

I scribbled with pencil on the back of the print-out, and traced the letters onto the top of the box.

 ...then I painted the words with black craft paint...

...and sanded the edges and across the words, and used Distress Ink to give an aged look to the edges I sanded.

I'm thinking the dogs are going to like it!
