My little dude needed a bed of his own
(or so I thought), so I decided to
try my hand at making one for him.
Pinterest has become another addiction of mine and
I have been seeing these dog beds made by
recycling old end tables.
So, I searched for quite a while at yard sales
and finally found one that fit the bill.
Here it is in it's original form.
I flipped it over; cut the shelf out;
cut two of the legs down; added 3 pieces
of 1"x4" and finally, added 4 fence
post caps to the bottom as feet.
The finials are end caps for
curtain rods. I also added two 1" x 2"
pieces to the back as a headboard.
Next, I spray painted everything black.
Then I made a quick pillow case for the
pillow and placed it in the bottom of
the bed as a mattress.
And to make it a Bugsy Original,
I painted a wooden crown to match the
pillow cover. Small wood alphas were attached
to spell BUGSY and some rhinestones were
added for effect.
Now, there is only one issue ...
... Bugsy wants NO PART of sleeping in it !!!
He sat long enough for me to snap this
photo but that's as much as he has used it.
WHAT A TOOT!!!
Thanks for stopping by.
