i have a soft spot for makeovers that involve furry friends. i spend a crazy amount of my day trying to make my cats happy, so when i see someone doing the same thing, it always makes me smile. photographer and designer jamie kovach shares a small one bedroom home with her boyfriend and their two dogs in austin, texas. alway looking for ways to make the most of their space, jamie decided to take on a pet project that would serve dual purposes. because jamie’s dogs had outgrown their puppy crate, but still crave a small space to curl up in, jamie decided to create create a desk/crate using her own two hands. with a little plywood, plexi, ikea table legs and a hole saw, jamie created a functional space that the whole family (human and canine) can enjoy. now jamie’s only remaining problem is that her landlord won’t let them repaint those red walls. ;) great work, jamie!

CLICK HERE for jen’s grey + yellow patterned laundry room makeover after the jump!
next up is jen at fresh crush, who’s tugging on my heart strings with the grey and yellow color palette. jen decided to makeover her drab laundry room by creating her own stencil on acetate. after stenciling the wall with the yellow pattern, jen installed a new storage system from rubbermaid and extra baskets from home sense to keep the clutter and cleaning supplies in order. the final result is so sweet, and jen says that now she doesn’t seem to mind doing the laundry as much ;) great work, jen!
