DIY Dog Beds

I have been thinking lately that my fur babies need stylish places to lounge and I would really rather look at something with a little substance in my great room rather than what amounts to a pile of foam covered in fabric.  

I would also really love if I could wash it and take it apart to replace parts if needed or if I just decide I need a change in the design.  

I rounded up my favorite DIY dog beds from Pinterest...


1.  One of my favorite websites, Shanty 2 Chic, posted this tutorial for a charming pet bed they made for $12! Their plans are always thorough, well-thought and easy to follow.  If you are a DIY-er you will appreciate their website.  They also have a show on HGTV called 'Open Concept' which is fantastic!  To get this look I would stain with one coat of Hickory Stain & Finish by CeCe Caldwell's.

2.  Prodigal Pieces has a how-to for building this bed which is adorable too!  This look can be achieved with a couple of coats of CeCe's Walnut Stain & Finish from Vintage Bette.

3.  1001 Pallets hit a home run with this double dog bed project on their website.  They provide a video tutorial so if you prefer watching to reading you will really like this one.  Beech Nut Gray Stain & Finish is the right choice for this look if you want to use a CeCe Caldwell's product.

4.  THIS BED...this bed is the one I want to make but I can't find a tutorial on Pinterest.  I will have to broaden my search for plans and maybe even pay for some.  I want to paint it in a very light gray so I will probably mix up some Seattle Mist and Simply White and then finish it with Flat Matte.

5.  This one is a little big for my space but if you are looking for a complete storage and organization solution for your pet it might be just right.  I couldn't find a tutorial or web source for it but someone pinned the image on Pinterest so I am sure you can find it somewhere if you are motivated!  To get this look I would paint it with Simply White by CeCe Caldwell's and finish it with Satin Finish.
