My New May Houzz Ideabook - Fabulous Foo Dogs


Please visit my new May Houzz Ideabook - Fabulous Foo Dogs where you will find my picks for adding a pair of these iconic mythical guardians to your home. You can always find the link to my Ideabooks in my sidebar. The red lacquered foo dog above is part of a pair available on 1st dibs for $6,000. A great DIY project - I just saw foo dogs like these on lucite bases at HomeGoods and T.J. Maxx for $19.99 each. Spray paint them high gloss red and convert them into lamps. The pair below are on 1st dibs for $1,895. Another great DIY, they were created taking a vintage pair and adding lucite bases and metallic lamp shades. The vintage blanc de Chine pair in the last photo, I snagged on Etsy last night for under $50 including shipping - I found them researching this Ideabook.
