From Side Table To Dog Bed

Following up on Monday’s post about turning an old TV console into a dog bed, Better Homes and Gardens suggest you turn an old side table into a dog bed. From the site:

Pamper your pooch by building a bed made from an unused side table. Remove the top and doors, then cut away any support pieces. After sanding rough edges, apply a fresh coat of paint that will complement your space. Finish by placing a fluffy dog pillow inside.

Like with the TV console, this project uses a piece of furniture that proliferate thrift stores, the octagon side table. You know, one of these:

I have often eyed those tables and wondered what you could do with one. Now I know.

Sharing is caring!

  1. My friends had these exact side tables in grad school! They used them as…side tables. 🙂 They were also a great place to keep bottled homebrew-so if it exploded, everything would be contained. And it did explode. FUN TIMES.

  2. Could be a fun little kid chair/reading nest too with enough padding! Now I’m going to have to keep my eyes open for one… 🙂

  3. I agree with Christy: soon as I saw the photo, I imagined being a toddler sitting in there with a stack of my favorite books and a sippy cup. A pillow on the back, maybe a tiny little ottoman for small feet? Adorable!
