The tiny under stairs space did not really work as storage but our dogs were extremely interested in exploring it every time the little door was open.
Not much was needed to create a dog-proofed kennel:
- a few plywood boards (to cover the old and dangerously protruding pipes and stuff),
- leftover floor panels (when the doggie bed is in you can’t even see the floor – but hey, I know it’s there looking nice!),
- one small roll of flowery wallpaper to brighten up the small and dark space,
- and some white / green paint as well as craft supplies (duh, obviously!).
