Grab an old end table & make a cutie patootie bed for your fav♥rite pooch!

I just l♥ve to reuse, recycle, re-purr-pose! One of my favorite blogs is JUNK CAMP. Imagine how thrilled I was when I saw this adorable cat/dog bed you can make from an old end table! Now, who doesn't have one of these hanging around in the basement or garage or hasn't seen one for just a couple of dollars at a yard sale? I have BIG dogs, so, with a little imagination, all you need is an old coffee table and there you have it - a dog bed!
Look what you can do with it! I know what I'll be doing next weekend. I'll be on the hunt for one of these "beauties" to transform into a bed fit for a little prince or princess. How about you? All directions to make this adorable, sweet bed can be found at the blog link listed above.

Times are rough and tough financially all over our great country. Get busy now and make a whole bunch of these cutie patooties to give as gifts this Christmas to your feline and canine l♥ving friends and relatives...and heck, strangers...these are too sweet not to share with everyone!

Thanks for a very good idea! We are moving things around here today and this kind of thing might be perfect! I even have an oldie table in the garage!

That is a pawesome idea... too bad I don't like dog beds!
It is my mom's fault! She let me sleep on her bed since the first day I came to live with her... and she has not had a good night since then! Haaa!
Take care
Kisses and hugs

Hi,

Welcome to DWB! That bed is so cute! We'll definitely check out that link. Thanks! Our mom made a pet bed out of an old end table for her cats. The cats are long gone so now me and my little brother use it.

Wags & wiggles,

Mimi, we have a little rescued dog visiting us tomorrow through the Melbourne Florida poodle rescue. He is part shih tzu, and they think he would make a great therapy dog for my visits to handicapped schools and nursing homes. We will have to see how he does with the cat. The poor dog was running down the highway with a lead on, matted and dirty. The rescue folks checked all of animal control places and he was not listed anywhere as lost. I just thought you might like to know. You are a great inspiration.

Hi there Scout & Freyja! Nice to meet you. Oh gee, I didn't even realize that that was a table turned upside down & made into a cat bed! How imaginative. My Mommy always wanted to make a bed for me but I HATE beds or anything that is warm. I like the cold floor!

Smoochies,

Sue said...

That is the cutest idea. I don't have a cat and I think our Golden puppy will get to big to find a table for......but I just love the idea. Have a great day.
