Ok so I thought I needed to step up my grooming area. I wanted to get this area as useful as I could. I moved everything inside my house (except the dog bath) and added a mirror, cabinet, and florecent lighting. Im hoping to get more advanced in the Poodle grooming area. Then to eventually start grooming Poodles in my home. Im planning on calling it "Poodle's Unlimited". lol

Anyhow, I was pleased with the outcome so I wanted to share. Here's some pics. Oh, one is the fireplace that I did doggie style. Thats across from the grooming table.

how fun!! your Poodle looks VERY unusual!! LOL :tongue:
lmao! Ya the poodles ran off when they saw I wanted pics on the table. Mya (Rat Terrier) and Lotus (pitbull) were the only one's that stuck around. The Pitbull weighs 90 lbs or so. I decided the Mya would do! lol

Looks great! The shop light is a good idea. I have a really hard time seeing Sam because he is so dark. I have an extra shop light that I use for seed starting in the spring I don't know why I never thought to put it over my table, duh! I'm going to go do that right now! Thanks!

Apparently there are tables with lights mounted in the tops which glow up - sounds brilliant for black dogs. I have downloights through out my area and also an overhead wall light which I can pull into place over the dog but it still doesn't seem like enough.

Thats a nice space, and I love the fireplace. *eye balls her own fireplace* hummm...
My mantel looks a little well thrown together. A couple of framed dog show photos, a picture of john and I and several artifacts from world travels... I like yours better!! *pouts* LoL

For your grooming might I suggest, espeicaly since you have black dogs, that you get another florecent light, the kind that would fit under a cabnet, do you know what I'm talking about?? Anyway with the light source directly above the dog like yours (and like mine) is you may get shadows. Having the second light that you can place underneath the dog whenever you need to helps a lot, especialy when you are scissoring underneath the dog and the rear legs. I use one that I used forever ago when I had a turtle, it has a reular bulb in it now, not a uvb buld, and it works great when I'm doing darker dogs.

I love how you made your poodle look exactly like a rat terrier.... what skills :) LoL. If only I were so talented.

Ha! Ha! Well I just lucked out (I can say that now that it's over) that our kitchen was destroyed and lots of cabinets were still salvageable. It only cost about $15 for the grippy material on top.

I like your "dog" sign on the wall too.
