I love this pet bed made from an old side table! It reminds me of the suitcase beds I wrote about previously. More great repurposing of an old object. Depending on the size of the table, you can make one for a cat or a dog.
Ki Nassauer over at Junk Camp shows how it’s done. First you need an old side table—look for one with interesting leg details, flip that sucker over, add some touches (finials, a headboard made from trim, feet), paint, and add a cushion or an old pillow and you’ve got a clever new pet bed. Awesome!
Instructables also has a tutorial inspired by this project. An important tip—use primer before you paint. Your life will be happier! Also, you can make feet for the bed from wood scraps or you can buy feet at a building supply store.
