Expedit desks to modern dog bed

Tiffany and hubby craft a simple yet stylish bed for their dachshunds.

She says, “The bed is made from two Expedit desks. The dog bed is the Bastis Flack bed covered in Inger fabric. The blanket is made from the Inger fabric as well. I sewed their old blanket to the bottom so it was still comfy to sleep under but pretty to look at!

    I know this is years later but, are there instruction on how to make this somwehere..
    We love it:-)

  2. It used to be considered that these dog beds were relatively expensive. But with the old laws of supply and demand, prices have fallen, making them a fantastic buy.

  3. Great solution, adorable dogs. Kudos!

    Man, Ikea Hacker’s really gone to the dogs ;)

    Looks great! If it was a bit bigger (we have a retriever who sprawls), I’d try it for our dog.

    That is so smart!! Much more attractive than a store-bought kennel/crate.

    I like this a lot. I’m trying to figure out how to replace the ugly dog crate in my living room, so keep the suggestions coming!
