This was a fun project. It makes me smile every time I walk through the “middle room”, “office”, “extra-large hallway”, “whatever you want to call this room”. Recently, this room has undergone a transformation to give it a little more of a functional purpose. I transformed an armoire into a hidden office, and refreshed an old buffet to hold toys and other items in need of a home. Even with the new storage systems, I still found myself tossing the girls’ backpacks and daycare bags into the corner of this room. I needed some hooks.
In walk the pig, giraffe, bear, and tiger. Well, I suppose only half of them walked into the room, the other half are in a box in the basement.
Two of these little guys had seen better days, because my dogs love to chew on rubber-ish toys. Fortunately for me, only their faces were chewed (not as fortunate for the animals, though). I bought the other two from Hobby Lobby.
There’s something so wrong with clamping an animal in a vice grip and using a hacksaw to cut it in two. Sorry, buddies.
I took a strip of leftover bead board and painted it. The animal butts got two coats of spray paint.
I drilled pilot holes into the bead board and then used screws to attach the animals to the front.
I attached it to the side of the toy storage “buffet” with a couple of screws. It’s such a fun and functional addition to the room!
