Study and dog room remodel

A handsome study room makeover from Tum. Good thing, Noodle, the dog, doesn’t tear everything apart, when he’s kept in there.

“We wanted to remodel one of our rooms to a study or office. We also needed it to hold our dog when we’re not home. It uses a Besta cabinet and underframe, Vika Hyttan stainless table top, Vika Amon tabletops in Black-Brown (used for the lower backing to hide the cables, and the backing above the stainless top), Vika Inge legs to hold up the back of the top (two brackets hold up the front), Basisk lights above the desk, Grono table lamps above the cabinets, Solsta sofabed, Lack coffee table, rug (can’t remember the name discontinued), Target floor lamp. Also various screws, L brackets to hold everything together, waterproof mattress pad and bed sheets used to cover the sofabed so that it’s easy to clean. The Solsta doesn’t come with a removable cover.”

Here are more details of Tum’s remodel.

    Neat idea! My Frenchie stays in the kitchen when I’m not home, but this looks much comfier :)

    Can the creator give a step by step or maybe a parts list for the closet/desk build? I would LOVE one of those in my studio!
