Drawer Dog Beds

I have been on a drawer re-purposing kick lately!
You can check out my other drawer repurpose posts
here & here if you would like…
For this drawer repurpose I really wanted to make
two dog beds for my wonderful babies,
Bella & Bear…

haha. Those faces.. They were squished because they
were laying so peacefully in their beds, & I made
them sit up for pictures.. I’m so mean.
Needless to say, they love them!

Before….

First I painted the drawers & then slightly distressed them
for a shabby chic look…

After painting & distressing I added numbers to the front
of the drawers {Mine were from Lowes for about $4}

 To make the cute little burlap pillows, I simply took two
extra twin pillows we had in our linen closet & cut
the burlap to size to fit the pillows.
I then sewed the burlap into pillow cases, leaving
one side open so they could easily be removed for
cleaning… Very simple & so cute!

 Number 1 & 2 is perfect for my dogs new beds,
because they are 2 of a kind.. Bear is Bella’s son
{she had 6 puppies November 2010}
They do everything together, where there is one,
there is the other.. Never separated &
I love it like that!!

Honestly my dogs {shih tzus} are so small that one drawer
would be big enough for both of them, but I wanted
to make one for each of them because they are spoiled like that…

I am thinking about changing the hardware out on each of the
drawers, but for now I distressed the original wooden
hardware on the drawers…

Mr. LMB wanted to make them into bunk beds, but I kept having
flashbacks to Step Brothers & didn’t want the babies
to get hurt, so here are the cute little bunk beds beds…

I know you are dying to see more pictures of the dogs,
but do you know how hard it was to make them both look &
not lay down in their comfy new beds… I gave up…

 Sleepy bear :) He was falling asleep sitting up durning our
photo shoot, probably because he woke us up at 7:30am on a Sunday
wanting to play… pay back time!

I have not found a permanent place for the dog beds yet, but
for now this spot in the dining room works pretty well &
it’s puppy approved!

What do you think about the drawer dog beds?
Have you ever made a dog bed?
Leave a comment below if you have, I would love to
hear about them!
If you have pictures of them, feel free to share the
on the facebook, Twitter, or Google+ page!

Talk to you soon…

    looks to a leather skirt, it depending upon hhow faar you zip it up.

  1. […] I thought I’d start out this week by sharing a project I made for my special little babies.  In my opinion, these two cuties deserve a miniature version of the Palace of Versailles to hang out, but my talent for building castles (even miniature ones) are nonexistent, so these adorable drawer beds will have to do!  I had a couple of extra drawers lying around from another project when I stumbled across the idea online to make these. You can check out my inspiration at Liz Marie Blog. […]
