The first project I decided to tackle was a doggy bed made out of a hexigonal 1970/80's side table. We all recognize the style of table I'm speaking of. It has a door on the front and it's got wood laminate all over it. Overall, ugly. So I found this sweet score in a pile of garbage after dropping Gage off at school.
So it seemed Margaret liked the bed, but Elliott was a little wound up from Roan to actually test it out. I hope he takes a liking to it. He would look super cute in it. So all in all, I had the white paint from my bedroom baseboards, the green paint from the walls in Gage's bedroom, I made the paw stencil our of hardboard in my recycle bin, I used the stuffing out of an old pillow for the bed but I bought the foam letters, the white button and the material for the bed. All in all this project cost me 20 bucks and I have leftover letters for another project and leftover flannel material that I'll find a use for later. I'm pleased with the end result. Check it out! What do you think??
