Rustic Dog Kennel

  • July 16, 2016


I wanted to create a kennel that was functional and fashionable that had a removable door for easy storage when removed.

  • This really looks awesome. It's hard to find a pet crate that combines function and fashion, but this one has them in spades. The X beams on the sides look great. What kind of paint did you use here?

    • I did a combination of a vinegar and still wool that I made and let sit for about 48hr, then I added Minwax Wood Finish in Classic Gray, and finished everything in a Minwax Paste Finishing Wax . The rebar and other metal on the kennel are spray painted with Rustolium Hammered Black
