When my mom arrived late last week we did some shopping. The one place that we wanted to “finish” was between the kitchen cabinets and the back door.
Addie the photo-bomber!
We drove to Wilmington, in a very round a bout way (which I blame on my new self-diagnosed disease that I will explain soon) to get to HomeGoods. It took us a while to find this wicker piece but once we did we knew it was perfect. There were quite a few more expensive free standing cabinets but I was in search of a deal.
I decided to make it animal friendly, so we placed Moxies food dish on top (away from the dogs) and put her scratch pad in the bottom since she was already keen on kneading into the wicker. The top drawer holds the dogs collars and I’m sure I’ll find a few more things to stuff in there. The fake plant also came from HomeGoods and was a nice touch. Then we searched for some sort of small fake tree to place next to it. Towards the end of our searching I found an entire row of branches and scratched the tree for the branches instead. The vase was probably my best find at only $10!
It’s working great in the house and I love the way it looks; however, there has been one problem. Moxie thinks that the branches are the best thing ever and she likes to chew them and knock the entire thing over. The excitement is starting to wear off but the branches have already taken a hard hit. I’d like to get some different ones for summer but I’ll have to see how long these last.
I have other exciting updates to show you. More to follow soon!
