Our new home is full of extra space. When we first moved in, I knew that we would eventually get puppies and I decided that we would turn this huge hall closet across from our bedroom into an official dog house. It had a full size door but sits under the stairs so once inside there is not much head room, it sits under the stairs. The odd shape makes it perfect for this purpose. So we painted the room a dark color and then decorated it with our best doggie decor. The final decoration was the beautiful iron gate door that we added in place of the door.
