ikea pet bed
the things we’ll do for our pets. even if mine are just guppies, i understand the lengths we’ll go to spoil them. so thuy’s pet hack really made me smile.
“it’s a a pet bed for a cat or small dog. it’s something i haven’t seen anyone do yet. i had this idea for about 2 years when i bought the bed and never got to paint and add a cushion until recently (2 years later and my cat finally got the stylish bed she deserves, though it seems she prefers to sleep next to me. aw.)
- take one ikea duktig doll’s bed:
- buy or make a cushion to fit the bed. in my case, my talented sister made the cushion with faux fur. she made it to be used as a throw pillow, but i thought it would be cute for the cat to have an animal print bed.
- paint bed any color. i used one can of black matte paint. the cost was $1.99 at home depot. it took several coats – i used the whole can.
the project cost less than $30, and a couple days (of not actual work, but to allow coats of paint to dry thoroughly.)”
