Upcycling Luiseach’s Lead

IMG_6810

Sweet Luiseach (that’s pronounced Lucy if you’re curious), my Irish Wolfhound, had a very pretty pink lead and collar set. Unfortunately in the harsh Aussie sun it has faded dramatically.

However it is still functional, and any dog owner will tell you these things can be expensive, so I didn’t really want to buy new, just for aesthetics.

Being on a budget and liking pretty things means you have to think creatively, so I decided to paint them! I wanted a striped design, so I chose my colours, picked up a brush, and the rest is history!

I went with randomly spaced stripes, and let the paint dry once I had done a few colours, to avoid painting stripe next to stripe and mixing the colours too much.

I think it turned out well, it certainly breathed some new life into a daggy but required item!
