CoCo’s revamped furniture 2 doggie bed
My CoCo now has his furniture 2 doggie bed done. Did you see my Trading blogs post?? over the last weekend?? go here K&D are awesome and they have this beautiful puppy Willow, well when we got partnered for the trading blogs I got inspired by Willow to make a furniture 2 doggy bed for Coco which I’d been meaning to do, but hadn’t gotten around too….. And I was not able to finish it in time to share on the Trading Blogs but its rett to go now.
I headed out thrifting see my finds here – in keeping with my realitvely new motto to reuse/refurbish/remodel/ recycle
why do I need to reinvent the wheel – I was going to get old pallets and try and make into platform for a bed but then came across these great pieces of furniture that needed a new life
option 1 was nice but a little too little and then I saw option 2 and it was love at first sight the price $4.99 oh yeah TRUE LOVE lol
so it came home with me and didn’t even make it in the door before it got it’s transformation. As it was a beautiful spring afternoon on the way home we stopped by Lowes and picked up the primer & paint both spray paints – this is going to be my easiest remake ever….
|the before pink & beige – not my favorite color at all
Primer goes on & dries in maybe 20 min tops
then the paint its….”Valspar textured ^see^” I have a thing for speckled sprays I’ve had this in every apt I’ve had in one form or another
I figured this color would hide CoCo hair 😉
Here’s where it’s going to live in my bedroom next to TV cabinet (which is getting makeover next)
Ta DAH!! the (cheating) AFTER see the curtain I got here I’m going to remake into the cover but this was just a test run of how it would look – curtain is waiting in line for it’s makeover
the real after is this – his bed with the quilt he was allowed to sleep on (used to be at the foot of my bed) I used this to bribe the dogie to come up onto his bed
totally worked see below
Oh almost forgot I added wheel’s oh yeah!!!
of coarse this took a little longer than expected as drill was not charged and the charger went missing just when I needed it ugh..
so I used the good ole fashioned screw driver & my “Borrowed Bestie” will have to come and tighten them later but for now
the reason behind the wheels is this look at his face below he is used to sleeping at the foot of my bed doesn’t it look like he is thinking “Um ma this is lil far from you”
Well I think that’s what he is thinking so I moved the spare coffee table (who doesn’t keep a spare coffee table??)
See how he is looking at my bed this won’t do!!
Sooooo much better now hee hee (the reason its on wheel’s )
and here are some pic’s of Coco having a play date w My favorate neice Al who came to visit me but whenever either her (or my sista M) come over CoCo tends to beleive their here for him they show him much love and he is always soooooooooo happy to see them
I know you wont beleive this but he totally went into the cabinet to show Al where the toys are!! my doggie is one smart cookie…….
