Well Bred Ped Bed

Well Bred Ped Bed
Holly needed to feed her Pinterest addiction, so when she found this abandoned side table begging for a makeover, she snatched it up to make a dog bed.  Fear not dog lovers! She did not actually put any dogs inside those doors. She removed them, flipped the whole thing over and added a pillow!
That reminds me of one time I was at Goodwill buying a little wire birdcage that was OBVIOUSLY decorative, and I was accosted by an old lady who demanded to know if I was going to keep a bird in there. “Nope!” I replied, “I’m going to spray paint it!” and then we had a fun I’m-pretty-sure-this-person-is-crazy stare-off.  Some people just don’t get it.  See more on Holly’s blog Aggravation Station


And Better After reader Sarah found an ornate table and planned to make it into a dog bed as well, but was stumped on exactly what to do.  Months passed and then it hit her: WuShock!
Oh, you don’t know what that is?  ALL the cool kids know what that is.  I’m kidding. I had no idea what that was, until she explained that the mascot of her alma mater, Wichita State University, is the WuShock.  Apparently, it used to be “Wheatshockers,” but got shortened.  I’m still confused.  Sarah clears it up further.  “Basically, we’re Kansas and like wheat.”  Got it.
So she played up the WuShock theme and made the “Woof Shock” fancy four-poster bed, in the school colors black and yellow, naturally.  That is one spoiled pup!  Thanks for sharing Sarah!

    Ha ha! I named my son Elliott. Never in a million years did I think of a dog having that name. I’ve always wanted to name a dog Kevin, so I guess I should not be too surprised. Very cool redo and dog bed.

    My basset sneaks down and sleeps on the couch every night. Maybe if he had somewhere like this he wouldn’t have to. Got to try it.

    My dog is still trying for the canine camping merit badge and sleeps under the stars. He thinks these dogs are possibly wimps that live in castles.

    The Woof Shock bed is just so precious. A friend has a Corgi that knows she is a princess. This bed has such a regal look, I am quite certain it would meet with her approval. Well done!
