Play house turned dog house. Someone was throwing away this child's playhouse, so I confiscated it and turned it into a cute little dog house. I used an old platform that usually goes underneath air conditioners for the front porch. I painted it to look like flagstone. I salvaged the cement fire hydrant, and with a little work it looks good again. I made the cedar barrel out of old fence wood that I got for free. A very nice look for very little money.
