We have two adorable puppies, and since they are indoor-outdoor dogs, we wanted them to have an extra special house of their own for the times they are outside!! My dad found the doghouse plans online for their little home and built it himself. Then, Kaitlyn and I painted the house to add some color and personality! We absolutely LOVE how it turned out--and Shadow and Sprinkle love it, too!
We purchased two different paint colors from Lowes to paint the house. We bought a gallon of Valspar exterior paint with a satin finish in "Twinkle Night" and a quart of Olympic exterior paint with a satin finish in "Yellow Lettuce." "Twinkle Night" is a medium to dark shade of purple-toned blue, which we used as base for the whole house; "Yellow Lettuce" is a light, bright green, which we used for the trim, plaques, and accenting paw prints. We picked up paw print stencils for $1.80 at Hobby Lobby with our 40% off coupon, and used a small, round sponge brush (specifically for stenciling) to lightly sponge on "Yellow Lettuce" paw prints! Our dad also built plaques with each puppy's name on it to finish off the house.
