If you didn’t know, now you do—there’s an amazing trend happening right now in the dog world: dog crates that look like furniture.
A good ol’ basic metal crate will always get the job done (and we’ve got tips on blinging those up too), but a DIY dog crate that doubles as a footboard, end table, or a sideboard? A dog crate that looks good even when it’s not being used? We’re sold. To inspire decorating ideas for the new year, we’re rounding up our favorite dog crate hacks.
All That Glitters
The Cupboard Under the Stairs
We know what to do with all that under-the-stair dead space. Move over, Harry Potter.
This walnut footboard is gorgeous, and doubles as a crate topper. You could also try a padded bench for a softer look.
This is the coziest thing we’ve ever seen. Woodworking has never been so cute. In a hurry? This end table achieves the same look, and in three finishes to suit any room.
This double doggie crate features metal tubing spray painted black for the cage + a concrete slab on top.
We love a good before and after. A handmade cushion + flag “garland” + personal artwork? S’cute!
Fresh + Clean
For all you minimalists out there.
Worn juuust enough to give it that warm, rustic feel that makes us feel fuzzy inside.

Out With the Old
From trash to treasure.
All Black Everything
Does it get any more elegant than this? We think not.
Hello, stripes! A crate cover is the perfect way to bring in more pattern, because who can have enough? Get the look.
We look at this and immediately feel relaxed and at peace. It’s like a spa, for dogs—and for our eyes.
