This nautical style dog bed is so darn adorable, that I’d be tempted to crawl in there myself and have a nap!
This old chest of drawers has been truly transformed into a treasure. I bet my bottom dollar that the most spoiled dog in the world sleeps in here.
Yep: it’s pretty much nicer than my entire living room…
If you fancy turning your dog into some sort of pirate and re-creating this captain bed, opt for rustic blue hues, with pops of bright red. Finish with nautical printed pillow covers and sailor style wallpaper.
DIY Dog Crate Bunk Bed
Whether you are beginning to crate train your puppy, or have a dog who loves to chill out in his crate, this next hack is for you!
A crate, which is essentially a large cage, isn’t exactly appealing to look at. I turned my crate into a bohemian-style bunk bed by covering the top with two table runners. I then added the exotic oriental pillow covers to ensure it blended seamlessly into my decor.
Artie loves sleeping up here above his best friend!

Are you the lucky owner of an under-stairs closet? It’s time to clear out all the junk and turn it into a built-in dog house!
This means that toys, dog bits and bobs, and of course your buddy himself can dwell in one neat, organized corner of the house.
Pet Home Decor Hacks For Cat Lovers
What Litter Tray?

Cat litter trays are about as aesthetically pleasing as a punch in the retina. Luckily, there are ways to hide Salem’s, ahem business, from those who visit your home.
A fantastic way to hide a litter box, is to put it under a table. Next, add a funky curtain to hide the tray. I love the way that the above design has incorporated scratching posts into the table legs too.
If you have zero sewing skills, or simply want to keep your table intact, grab a printed table runner and drape off the end of the table until it is just above ground level.

Rather than throwing away this old draw set, this crafty pet owner removed some drawers and turned the remainder into a multi-purpose cat decor piece. The best part? It’s a litter tray hider and a bed all in one! Plus, it has oodles of rustic charm.
