Based out of Cobourg, ON (CAN), Barking Dog Salvage & Design produces unique décor for your home.
Their “fabulous and funky” designs are made by recycling and reusing old furniture, shutters, and other ‘junk’ they find. The result is a unique and beautiful selection of artistic pieces that will fit any décor and taste. They specialize in one of a kind hand painted furniture and home décor accessories, with products that include hand painted shutters, painted screens, and various types of furniture.
While all their products are lovely, my personal favourites have to be their one of a kind shutters. Not only are they a unique idea, but they turn a rather generic (and common) piece of exterior window décor into fabulous designs that I would be thrilled to adorn my walls with. Its also a great way to bring your love of horses indoors in a fun and creative new way! Cause we all know that most equestrians have a house full of horse themed items (from trinkets to artwork) – there’s no denying it.
The distressed look of each piece, paired with the wonderful (often contrasting) colours make the designs pop, while also giving them a unique aged look which complements the history of the canvas. While similar designs or concepts are invoked across various pieces, the use of different colours and painting styles makes each shutter a standalone piece. With a wide range of shutter styles and sizes, as well as the wide range of potential designs to choose from, and a wide range of new designs always in development, the possibilities are endless.
For the equine enthusiast, they have a wide range of horse themed styles that are absolutely gorgeous. I am particularly fond of the ‘I ♥ my horse’ shutter, as well as the ‘horse and canine companion’ shutter, both of which are new designs.
Due to the one of a kind nature of the products, only certain designs are available to purchase at a specific time. They do offer custom and special orders, allowing you the chance to have a similar pattern, colour, or shutter size (from a sold piece) reproduced.
For a one of a kind piece of artistry that is sure to be the talking point of your household, their prices are (in my opinion) quite reasonable. Prices of course do vary, dependant on the piece.

They really do turn trash into treasure!
