A reader asks: I wonder if you have seen any cute/functional/durable dog toy storage containers. We have a 10-month-old black Lab puppy, and I'd love to corral her toys in something cute/functional/durable. An added note, I have a farmhouse country decorating theme.
Oh, I love a challenge like this. While there's no reason you'd have to use a box designed specifically for dog toys, there sure are some nice options out there. The one above comes from Whitney Works Home.
Pet Studio makes some pet toy boxes, in white and mahogany. These are available from a number of on-line stores. Update on Oct. 29, 2013: I'm no longer finding these toy boxes.
This dog toy chest with the hand-painted front panel is also sold by a number of on-line stores. Update on Oct. 29, 2013: I'm no longer finding this toy chest.
Tails by the Lake makes toy boxes with pictures of different breeds, including Labs. Update on Oct. 29, 2013: I'm no longer finding these toy boxes.
Lola & Penelope's Pet Boutique has this hand-made pet toy chest.
Little Shop of Terrors has toy boxes shaped like bones, in two sizes. Update on Oct. 29, 2013: I'm no longer finding these toy boxes.
If you'd like something without a lid, this wooden dog toy bin might do. Update on Oct. 29, 2013: I'm no longer finding this toy bin.
And while they may be the right thing for the reader posing the question, I just have to mention these pet toy boxes handcrafted from wine crates.
