Malm Dresser Turned Dog Window Seat

Materials: Malm Dresser, Paint, Plywood, Foam, Batting, Fabric, Staples, Upholstery Nails

Description: I created a window seat for our dogs so that they are able to sit and look out the window.


Paint dresser (optional).
Cut a piece of plywood to fit the top of the dresser.
Cut a piece of foam the same size as the plywood.
Wrap batting and fabric around to backside of plywood and staple down.
To create tufts, I used upholstery nails hammered down through the fabric, batting and foam into the plywood. (optional)

    Terrific idea! As a dog lover ( and owner), I can appreciate how important it is to have spaces for your dogs to window-gaze!
