Dog Bed from an End Table - Leopard Print

Just finished another dog bed, made from an end table
You can see the others I've made HEREHERE, and HERE


I started with this...


Cut the legs down, added pieces and parts and came up with this...


...then started painting!
I started with a light caramel color base coat and added 
a little darker glaze on top of that before I painted the leopard spots....


...in process

added wooden finials for the feet...

Painted the back too...

More finials on the leg posts and lots of animal print, dots and stripes...

The headboard piece was the seat from a wooden barstool
I painted a big paw print on that...

I found a cushion to fit with animal print on one side and plain black on the other...

I painted gold dots on the black side...
I talk more about how I paint on fabric on THIS POST

And of course I painted the inside too...
Can't be having naked areas...this is not that kind of site
