|Get a couple pallets. I think we used three total.|
|Pull them apart with a claw hammer or crow bar or similar.|
|Tie up your puppies while you're working so they don't escape.|
(Apologies for the huge mess in the basement.)
|Paint your pickets in whatever colors you'd like! We used some extra paint|
from when we painted the walls of the house. I used a dry brush technique
and only put on one light coat for the shabby-chic look.
|Put your frame in place (see the bracket I was talking about on the left side?).|
Then attach your pickets however you'd like.
We also used some cheap upholstery fabric from the thrift store on the sides
and bottom to try to avoid scratching the floor.
|Attach all of your pickets and a latch to keep the door closed!|
You can do pickets on just one side or both - this picture shows only one
side done but we added pickets to the other side later.
|Your puppies will still love you, even from behind their new gate.|
