Dog Cage Decor

We have two large dogs; one is a red coon hound who is missing a leg and is happy just relaxing and greeting everyone who comes over and the other is a black lab/pit mix with a white star on his chest who is our guardian/protector. We had been in the house six months and I was sick of seeing large ugly metal cages in our game room. It’s the first room people see when they walk in the front door and I no longer wanted the dog cage to be an eye sore. I wanted a place for the dogs that was comfortable and easily accessible to get into, not the first thing people see when they walk in, and seamlessly blended in with the existing decor. I wanted retractable doors so my kids would not knock into them when not in use. The retractable doors also make the portable crib mattresses, which my dogs lay on, easy to access when the sheets need washing. The dog cage also had to be dual purpose and be able to provide additional window seating as our four children frequently have lots of friends over, and they somehow always end up in the game room. Thanks to our RYOBI tools we were able to custom make dog beds/cages that are functional and beautiful. The cost of the mattresses, wood, latches, screws, paint, nails, plastic screen material all cost me less than $150 dollars! Two custom dog bed/cages for $150! Thank you RYOBI!
