Steph has had Mac, the greyhound, about two months. In that period of time, she has acquired a lot of dog gear necessitating a need for additional storage. She came up with an idea of twin wall mounted storage spaces for both she and Mac!
We were recently contacted by the Florida family owned company, Stencil Revolution, to try out some of their stencils. When this idea came about, we knew it was the perfect opportunity to try a a couple of fun stencils.
We continued the family owned company theme, by also utilizing Surebonder, the family owned hot glue gun and adhesive company, as well Georgia family owned company, Wall Control.
Read on to see how our "we are family" project came together.
You can't see it in this picture, but I used a washable fabric marker to make a guide line to help keep the letters lined up. Tip: if you use a washable fabric marker, be sure to test it first to be sure it will erase from what you are working on. I actually made a sample board so I could test out paint, fabric pen, and finish.
Once the stenciling was finished and dry, it was onto assembly. We are using a Surebonder hot glue gun with Wood Stik, which is a hot glue version of wood glue. Work as a team as hot glue dries very quickly. With hot glue, the project goes together very quickly and there is no down time waiting for standard glue to dry.
With the two storage units up and in place, Steph now has all her human and dog necessities all organized and ready. Mac is very persistent in 'nosing' out treats so Steph is happy to have both Mac's and her treats up and out of the dog's way.
Using the Wall Control panel with movable hooks means she has flexibility in what she stores in the drop zone. As the weather changes, so will what is stored here. Steph especially likes the Wall Control peg on the far right side of Mac's side. It allows Mac's collar and leash to easily side on and off.
Please note: This is not a sponsored post, but we would like to thank Stencil Revolution, Wall Control, and Surebonder for the product we used in this post.

Hi Vicky- we went with "my dog" and "my human" because my mom calls me mac's "human" :) It's just something cute she said and it stuck!

I can't seem to find the pattern for your dog bandana. I've just read your instructions to make one for my daughters dog. I love the way yours came out and would l to make one the same way. Would it be possible for you to email one to me? If it's not a free pattern I'm willing to pay for it.
