Crate set-up pictures

I'm trying to figure out to rearrange Sigurd's crate set-up. I am trying to make it more stylish, less of an eye sore. I'd love to see pictures of your crate set-up for some inspiration.

This is completely not creative or nice-looking. I am posting this only so you see how nice your set-up probably is in comparison.

This is Niko hanging out in Rosa's crate, just for fun. This is on the other side of the bed.



There, now don't you feel better about Sigurd's crate set up?

Try a google images search for "fancy dog crates." There are some really nice ones on there! I particularly like this one- it's a nice twist on the typical end opening crates:

I'd love to find a way to make the 4 crates we have in our bedroom look better!

good_karma: that first cage looks massive, what size is it?
elisabeth - That's hilarious. I'll go check it out, is it on gshome? I really like your crate set-up idea, do you mind if I save that image for future reference/inspiration??
wildo: I love that set-up!!

I was thinking of somehow sewing my own crate cover. I'm just not sure how about to do it. Any suggestions? I was thinking of getting material that covers the whole crate, and cutting it where the edges are and stitching that back up so it's snug. I'd leave an end completely open for the door. Would that even work? lol

ETA: I'd love to get a table that would work with the crate, that would be awesome. I'll keep searching around. I'm not handy and don't know anyone who is, so I couldn't just get it made by scratch.

This is a reasonable facsimile of our stairs:

We're getting the guy who did them to make matching gates and a big pen out of the same products... Whenever he gets around to it

What is the height of that crate and where did you get it? Chrono's is 33" high but it's way too short and he's getting little white calluses on his ears from his ears rubbing the top, but I can't find anything taller ANYWHERE.

Hmmm!

I had purchased fabric and made little toppers, but then had to get some custom sized wall stuff cut to top the crate and then put the fabric over that, because they would pull the covers through the wires.

Oh - etsy!
