One of my family’s most favorite things to do is to take our sweet boxer, Bella, for a walk. It’s great to have her leash at hand in a way that coordinates with the style and decor of our home. I love to repurpose antique finds and this project is perfect for using old door knobs, drawer pulls, door plates and scrap wood. You can also head over to your local craft store to pick up the bits and pieces needed to create this leash holder.

What You Need:

a door knob or drawer pull (I have amassed quite a collection of small door knobs and drawer pulls but you can get a door plate and glass knob combo like the one featured in this tutorial in craft stores)

screws to attach your knob/doorplate

wooden letters if you want to customize your dog leash holder

glue that works well for wood surfaces

a piece of wood that is large enough to fit all of your project elements

wood stain, a cloth, and gloves (I always chooses a stain and finish in one product for my projects)

a small amount of paint to highlight the letters to match your color scheme

a clip or pin to hold a small treat bag (my clothes pin came from the scrapbooking area of my local craft store)

a sawtooth hanger and 2 tiny nails

The first thing my husband and I did was place everything on my piece of wood to arrange it the way we wanted.

We glued my wooden letters down to form my doggy’s name.

When the glue dried we used a cotton cloth to stain the wood.

Next the doorplate knob piece was screwed into place.

We decided to add a little clothes pin to hold a little bag of ready-to-go treats.

We wanted to add some color to her name to make it stand out and tie together all of the teal elements. So I rubbed the letter with a bit of acrylic paint.

Bella is one high energy dog! Because boxers are known to have food sensitivities, she needs a high quality dog food that doesn’t contain corn or wheat and is easy to digest. A high quality protein source should always be the #1 ingredient. So we give her Nature’s Recipe® Adult Lamb Meal & Rice dry dog food. It’s formulated to be perfect for an active adult dog with lamb meal for muscles and energy and flaxseed for omega fatty acids. There is nothing artificial in their dog food recipes.  No matter which variety you try, they are all crafted to keep your dog in the best of health with benefits for skin and coat, digestive health, and maintaining a healthy weight.

I wanted her to sit by the bowl for a photo but she really wanted to eat it. She is adorable but not very patient!
