PupStyle Home: Wine Lovers Reclaimed Wine Barrel Dog Beds And Feeders

So what to do with that old wine barrel you picked up at a flea market years ago and it’s been collecting dust in the basement? Keep using it as an end table or flower pot? Nah,  Rock Creek Furniture Company at Etsy.com came up with a really smart DIY idea that you can try yourself or buy from them.

Beautifully , aged reclaimed wine barrels are turned into stylish dog beds and feeders that you can’t find at a mass retailer.  This Colorado based company uses barrels from reclaimed American or French oak which are carefully reinforced, sanded and and sprayed with a high-quality clear finish for a lasting product.

You can change the feeling of the bed easily by experimenting with different fabrics for the cushion. Plaids will give this a classic country look while bold modern prints make it edgy and cool.

A reversible cushion with fleece on one side is a great way to add warmth for winter.

PupStyle Pumpkins! DIY Dog Pumpkin Carving Project

Halloween is by far one our favorite holidays at PupStyle.com.  In my family we have a yearly tradition of carving pumpkins.  Every year I like to change it up so this year,  I was inspired by my Chiweenie Sophie!

I can’t resist her adorable face and hey why not put her face on a pumpkin? Here are the steps I took to create my Sophie Pumpkin!

Simply go to google and type in the breed of dog you have along with free pumpkin printable. For example I typed: weenie dog free pumpkin printable.

After looking into some different websites, I then found a printable weenie dog pumpkin carving that also came with directions! http://www.ilovedachshunds.org/free-dachshund-pumpkin-carving-stencil-pattern/

I then followed the directions and wala! My Sophie pumpkin is complete!

Luxirare’s Rocky DIY Adidas dog track suit

Mystery fashion blogger Luxirare is an internet fashion phenomena and a pet fashion aficionado. There is very little known about Ji Kim the force behind Luxirare (she obscures her face in all postings on the site) – but she does dote on her Maltese, Rocky. In a recent posting she documented the process of buying a children’s Adidas track suit and re-draping and re-sewing it to fit Rocky – Rocky x Adidas. Going from a two piece track suit the eventual outcome became a one-piece jumpsuit complete with a leash remade from an Adidas necklace. Luxirare may remain a mystery but we’ve got our eyes out for a white Maltese rocking a dope Adidas track suit!
