Randomly Spotted on the Galactic Interweb…

pet bed

Like many Craftsters, I absolutely adore my pets. Like nearly all Craftsters, I also adore junk. Specifically, taking something unloved and making it into something fabulous. When I randomly came across this awesome pet bed on the fantastic Junk Camp blog I nearly wept. It’s one of those “aha!” projects that is so brilliant you can’t believe you never thought of it. 🙂 It’s beautifully made, and comes with instructions. Make your pet feel like a king with an awesome fourposter bed all their own!

  3. batgirl says:

    You could make yours into bunk beds! 😀

  4. Marcy says:

    haha Bunk beds! I’ve thought of bunk beds for mine…put the chihuahua on the bottom bunk and the bigger dog on the top. He would only have to barely step up to get into his bunk!

    I remember seeing this in the magazine aswell. I noticed though, if somone didnt want to build it they could just turn a small side table upside down, screw on some bedknobs, paint and sew a pillow to fit.

    At first sight I thought it was an upside-down Table: So there’s something to consider……….That is if you have a little old Table that doesn’t Qualify for being an Antique……

    oh yeah, i thought they turned a bench upside-down, too. and put the cushion inside.
    also: i think this will be even more improved by adding scratching rug material to the insides of the legs with a staple gun.

    That’s awesome!!

  14. HisTechnoAngel says:

    ooohhh…. very very cool. You could probably find a table on your local Freecycle website ( and that way the table would be FREE lol…. just turn it upside down and voila 🙂

  15. Love this! It’s beautiful.

    Now how could you add a canopy…?

  17. vinnie451 says:

    OMG! It would be so amazing with a canopy! I can’t belive they got the cat to stay and pose.

  18. batgirl says:

    I bet you could construct a canopy frame with dowels. That would be cute! I’m sure my cats would want to pull it down, but a more civilized cat would love it! 😉
