Friday marks a new year — Lunar New Year, that is.

More commonly known as the Chinese New Year, the Lunar New Year is an ever-changing date that celebrates a different animal in the Chinese zodiac based on an ancient mythology. This year is the year of the dog.

To mark the festivities and to celebrate the best friend in your life, we’ve gathered 10 pet accessories that will make your dog feel like a pampered pup.

Bad Marlon Oshu House | $473

Lace-like details are carved from this powder-coated steel and heavily angular dog house. Korea-based Bad Marlon states the design invites sunlight to beam through the triangular cutouts to make a pleasing design in your home.

Mr. Dog Marble Water Bowl | $450 to $650

Match your dog’s dishes to your countertops. The white Danby marble, mined in Vermont, keeps water at an optimum temperature, even in the dog days of summer. The bowls are also heavy enough that they stay put even with the rowdiest of canines.

Bricker & Bark The Winston Bed | $285 to $345

Mid-Century-modern enthusiasts will love this sleek and simple dog bed made of American walnut. Bricker & Bark’s beds come in three sizes and nine fabric choices in canvas and leather.

Made of chocolate brown leather, this leash can be hooked in six different ways for maximum — or minimum — control of your dog. The leash can even be hooked to create a double leash for those walks when more is merrier.

Janery Charlie Cushion in Morganite | $104

Janery’s waterproof cushions come in 12 vibrant patterns and are made of American-made waterproof canvas that can withstand more than 300 washes. Cushions are channel-sewn to prevent stuffing from clumping together, creating an optimal place of comfort for your dog.

Nice Digs Master Confetti Leather Dog Collar | $28.31

Brick walls are an excellent way to give your interiors an industrial look, but the decor isn’t for everyone.

If your home’s brick interiors make the space feel small or dark, consider a coat — or several — of paint. Choosing a light, neutral paint color will mask the brick’s inherently urban look and make your space feel fresher. Opt for a water-based acrylic paint in a semi-gloss or gloss finish to highlight the brick’s texture and retain a bit of edge with the new appearance.

Make sure the brick and mortar are structurally sound before going ahead with your project. If there is too much moisture inside the brick, speak to a professional for guidance. Because brick is porous, moisture levels are a prime concern: too much could cause the paint to chip or cause bigger issues.  

Follow these steps to update your brick walls successfully.

Prep and clean

Move away or cover furniture with a tarpaulin or old sheets to protect your belongings during the painting process.

Then, using a stiff nylon brush, clean the brick and mortar of any loose dirt and dust, then vacuum residue. Once the larger particles are removed, scrub the bricks with a wire brush and a simple soap and water mixture.

For something stronger, clean with a trisodium phosphate mixture (a half-cup mixed with a gallon of water). For mildew, mix one part of bleach to three parts of water. Experts discourage acid cleaning solutions, which could cause paint to chip.

Let your wall or fireplace dry for at least 24 hours. If the brick feels cold, it needs more drying time.

Fill in the gaps

Use spackle to fill small gaps and cracks and caulk for larger gaps.

This allows for a smoother finish when priming and painting.

Paint with patience

Once your surface is clean and dry, apply a latex primer with a nylon polyester brush about 2- to 3-inches wide to the perimeter of the wall. Use a nap roller about half an inch to 1.25 inches in diameter to apply the rest of the primer. The rougher the surface, the larger the roller must be to push the primer into the pores and grooves of the brick and mortar.

Work in small sections starting from the top of the wall. Use your paintbrush to smooth out drips as quickly as possible.

Allow your primer to fully dry per the manufacturer’s instructions. Apply another coat of primer if needed.

Then, paint the wall with your paint roller first and follow-up with a paintbrush around the edges of the wall and between mortar joints.

Let dry for at least 24 hours.

Admire your work

Once you’ve completed your project, your room will feel entirely different. Exposed brick has an edge to it. When painted, it can change the tone of your room — from sophisticated to dramatic — depending on your chosen paint color.
