Upcycle An End Table Into A Comfy Pet Bed!

From Trash To Treasure. . .This Upcycling Project Is The CUTEST!

I saw this post online and my mind immediately rushed to the old table I have in my shed! I looove a good upcycling project and this is a good one. Upcycling, for those of you who may not be familiar with the term, is when you re-imagine and repurpose an otherwise unwanted object.

For this upcycling project, you’ll just need an old table, some paint. . .and a precious little fur-baby. (This will all make sense later, trust me!)

If you want to see how it’s done in a little more detail, you can watch the video below. 🙂

1. Gather up an old end table.

2. Drill 4 holes along the outside corners and screw in 4 bun feet.

3. Flip the table over and paint the whole thing. If you like, you can add a piece of plywood, too. (This will make sense when you see the finished product!)

4. Paint some fun accent colors.

5. And last but not least, add a comfy pillow or cushion, and top with an adorable pup!

How precious is that? You can barely recognize the table now, and boy does this sweet pup look happy!

Here are some more adorable upcycled pet beds to inspire you! And scroll down for an instructional upcycled pet bed video, too.

2. And here’s a variation of the suitcase bed where the top has been removed. (To complete this project, the crafter topped with a cozy cat instead of a happy pooch–really, the toppings are up to you!) 😉

9. Flatscreen TVs are all the rage, but these happy critters are ‘channeling’ comfort in these old-school TVs.

I love how this project could not only give new life and purpose to something collecting dust in my shed, but it could also make my little fur-baby’s life a little more comfy, too.

I just know my little fluff would be happy in any of these creations. Check out the video below for a more detailed description of the project, and be sure to let us know on our Facebook page if you have an upcycling success story to share!
