I saw this idea in a magazine somewhere - just a mention of it. I thought it looked like fun so I decided to give it a try.
The weekend that my DH was away, I went to the thrift store and for $10.00 I got a small table in terrible condition. Just about 24 inches by 18 inches. Painted brown or shellacked and flaking off all over the place.
Here is the top in the original condition.
I turned it over, added wooden finials to the ends of the legs and two pieces of wood to one end between two legs, painted the whole thing, added a covered cushion and here it is...a small pet bed!!!
The things on the headboard came off an old frame, and are temporary here. I'm fooling around with making a plaque for the headboard with "DOG" or "CAT" but want to add that later for whoever get's this.
Ain't it cute???
( Yes, I realize that I need a more "professional" setting for photographs aside from the basement workshelf. But it's early and the light is bad everywhere else so I just did it. Gotta get with the background idea).
I'm making another cover for the bed part. I started out making a fitted cover but realized that it would be better to have a sort of fitted sheet. The one I was in the middle of making is actually a bit small, so I'll start again on that.
This was a fun, quick project....now....anyone have a tiny dog who needs a bed?????
