Hand Painted Round Dog Beds Made From an End Table in Zebra and Leopard Print, Designer Look

These are my latest hand painted dog beds...
Update 2014 I'm no longer creating the dog beds and 
they are completely sold out. Thank you for your past
support and purchases.
Visit my new online shop featuring my mosaic art.
Thank you!

diy round end table into dog bed
I made them from this round end table. 
When I bought it, I was thinking I would cut the top off to make "a" bed....

round end table turned into dog bed
But when I cut the top off I realized I now had two beds...Duh! :)

For the taller one, I painted a zebra design on the inside, with turquoise, 
muted orange and metallic gold on other parts of the bed.

hand painted dog bed and hand painted cushion
I made a custom, reversible cushion with a dotted paw print on one
side and black fabric painted with big gold dots on the other side.

I even painted a cream strip of fabric to make my own striped edging on the cushion.

Painted all the way around...

Of course have to add dots and stripes.
The round finials are attached with screws and glue to be secure and safe for a pet.

I didn't add feet but the table had a wood apron and I 
painted in black and cream stripes.

No area is left unpainted...the bottom of the bed under the cushion
is painted in aqua swirls with a bone shape.
See all the details in my Etsy shop .

For the second one I decided on leopard print.
This is my life sized stuffed Yorkie that I'm using as a model ;)

The inside has a great mix of patterns and colors...

 Along with leopard print, stripes and dots.

using dremel to carve dots
For the feet, I had a cool shaped wooden spindle, so I cut it down and 
used the Dremel to carve dots in them that I painted in cream.
