Dog Bed From an End Table- Black and White Stripes

I just finished this little dog bed I made from an end table

This is how it started

I added some finials and spool things for legs

I cut the legs off on one end, added the finials and feet and 
attached a wooden plaque that I had to make the headboard

Here it is after paint

Added a little bone for the headboard

Painted the back too

Lots of hand painting on this one

I found this great cushion that was just the right dimensions.  
It doesn't show up well in the picture but the fringe matches the rest of the paint colors perfectly

This will be going to my new space at Smith's Antiques and Interiors...SOLD

Join me on Facebook and Pinterest too!

 I've made more dog beds from end tables since this one...
you can see them HERE and  HERE

  22. Lucy, I have never seen anything as cute as this old end table, turned dog bed. It is absolutely beautiful. You are so creative.


  23. I absolutely love this. You make this seem so doable. I will be on the lookout for a similar table. Thank you!!!!

  24. I am hitting the Thrift store tomorrow. If mine turns out half a adorable as yours then I will be so happy!!

  25. This is awesome! I am so glad you stopped by so I could find your great blog!


  26. I never would have thought of this! Probably because my 85 pound dog would never fit on it! Cute, though!

  27. I LOVE this! Its FAB!!! Come on 'ova and share this at my Linky Par-Tay!



  28. You have got to be kidding me! This is the cutest thing I have ever seen!!! My Sophie has got to have one of these. Well, it would be for looks only because she actually has a king size bed that she lets her mama and daddy share with her, but maybe we could use this for nap time? Oh how cute! Stop by and meet Sophie Parsons sometime.

  29. too darn cute! I've made dog beds out of chairs, but not tables!
    featuring this post in my highlights this week.

  30. What a fine bed for some fine doggie!
    You did a great job,I love the design!

    God Bless,

  31. I'm in complete agreement with everyone else, this is just the coolest, must amazing thing ever!! I love it! My dog is a black lab (ie, too big!) but my house rabbits would love this! They are always taking my floor pillows to lie on!

    I've only recently discovered your blog and just love it! I have alot of furniture that we have purchased at antique auctions and fun thrifting trips, and I'm hoping to get some ideas to recreate it!

    I look forward to reading more!

  32. This is so adorable! I absolutely LOVE it :)

  33. Thank you for linking up this great post last week! {Im a lil behind, eeekk!}

  34. I am glad my dog can't read or surf the web because he'd totally want this bed.

  35. Thanks a lot so much for the trusted and results-oriented help. I will not think twice to recommend your writing to any personal that should have assistance on this topic.
