I used this amazing tutorial to make a petbed out of a sidetable

http://petprojectblog.com/archives/cats/diy-pet-bed-made-from-table/ (working link!!)
TADA


This is the table I used from IKEA


I cut the table down to make it smaller, added feet to the bottom, had a very talented friend make the tops for the posts, screwed and glued it all together and painted it.

Then I cut a cushion out of foam and sewed the cover for it.



And this is the actual recipient, the cat was just testing it out....

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

So regal!  Great job!  I love the beaded fringe detail to really tie the cushion in with the fou-poster style.

Regal is the word for it. The cat looked mighty comfy in it, too. You may have to make another.

It is better to have crafted and failed then never to have crafted at all.
Yes, I am stalking the Toys and Playthings board. Thanks for noticing!
I'm cheating on Craftster with Pinterest. It's ok though. There's overlap.

Well done! Love the chocolate brown with the blue.

Although your link to the tutorial wouldn't work for me, I have seen the tutorial before and thought this would be a great project to do.

And by the looks of it, I think you may want to make one for the cat too Cheesy

This is fantastic! I briefly got into BJDs (ball jointed dolls) and I think this would be a hit with their community.

That's awesome! I've seen the tute, but your gorgeous meezer makes me feel like my uncle's lilac, Major, should have one! I hope the recipient is as comfortable on it as your kitty Tongue

Woo Hoo!!
Congrats on being Craftster Best!!

And I do so LOVE this idea, and that tute is AWESOME!!
I will def have to try this out for my little doggies.  They have so many blankets, and they just throw them all around their room.
Which admittedly is only a really big closet with a light, and outlet for their space heater.  But my oldest scoots the  blankets all over the room.
Including on top of the used potty pads. Eww.  I do believe this will be something I will have to try out! Thanks for sharing!
