Hand Painted Dog Bed from an End Table with Hand Painted Cushion

dog bed from an end table
My latest dog bed...from an end table.
You can check out the others I've made by 
clicking on "Dog beds" Categories section
Update as of 2013, I'm no longer making the dog beds.
Please visit my new online shop featuring my mosaic art
and occasional paintings and hand painted items.

turn and end table into a pet bed
I started with this table thinking, oh how cute, look at the lines on this!
I'll cut the legs off and use those for the sides, it'll be easy!...Ha!
Let's just say I won't buy a table like this again
to make a pet bed ;)

Moving on... here it is after it was basically
taken apart then put back together!

painting on fabric dog bed cushion with painted dog bones
I hand painted my own fabric to make the cushion
See how I paint on fabric.

I have a roll of this...not really sure what it is! It's kind of 
like a smooth muslin, with pinked edges on a roll.
Anyway, I decided to incorporate it into the cushion as well.

striped fabric piping
I took a length of it, painted black stripes then 
edged the cushion with it

I love the extra little stripe it adds

I always paint my dog beds so they look great from any angle.

  1. Love love love this one... Well love all of your doggie beds!

  2. Such a creative repurpose with the tables. I just love your work.

  3. Okay, this is just so crazy cute and creative that I had to pin it!



  4. Now this dog bed looks so nice specially the green stripes. It looks like one of those beds at the kennels in Long Island. Good job!


I've moved to to focus on my mosaic art. I'm no longer creating dragonflies or mermaids.
