My latest dog bed...
I'm calling it a Beach Cabana design
I started making my dog beds by re-purposing end tables.
You can click the "Dog Bed" category to see all of them.
When I started selling and shipping more of them, the inconsistencies of the sizes and
weights of the tables just wasn't working so I had someone build bases for me.
But, since I've always wanted a nail gun to use with my compressor,
this was the perfect excuse to get one.
So now I build my own!
For this one, I started with the solid wood base and added cream and warm yellow stripes
and wooden bun feet also painted in cream...
I added wooden shell and starfish cutouts to the front.
I painted them cream then washed with brown to bring out the detail.
The headboard is made from a skimboard that I painted in the same colors.
I hand cut a large starfish shape and added texture with Flexall.
The painted design wraps all the way around.
I painted the inside in a soft blue with sheer white dots...
All the cushions are hand made by me in coordinating, fun fabrics.
It has a soft bottom cushion and three long ones that wrap around the edges
so your dog is super comfy. Three small pillows are along the back...
I love all the combos of textures and patterns
I made the large bottom cushion with an envelope style removable cover so it's
washable on gentle cycle and hang to dry.
I love how it turned out.
The skimboard headboard removes for shipping and is easily
reattached using three screws in predrilled holes
I need to think of a name for my stuffed life size Yorkie model,
she looks so real!
This bed is 28" tall including the headboard, 24" wide and 20" deep but since
I'm making them, they can be any size.
