Morning, everyone! Claire here with a DIY that’s perfect for your very best friend. If you know me at all (or follow me on instagram) you’re most likely aware of that fact that I am an avid dog lover. Monte – who loves to make regular appearances in my projects holds a very special place in my heart….and in the living room. So I’m in desperate need of a bed that works with the style of my house. I can’t wait to get started (and to get rid of his current cliche bed) but first I need your opinions and ideas! Which of these beds strikes your fancy? Have any of you attempted this DIY before? Comments, ideas and suggestions are welcome, and stay tuned for the big reveal in two weeks!

    I love the ones in the first image. When the pup is isn’t sleeping, it could still be useful!

      I know isn’t it gorgeous? I wonder how long it would stay pretty though with my crazy man, Monte. 😉

      Thanks for commenting, Chelsea! I think a lot of people love this one….and so do I! I just wonder how to make it a usable bed and ottoman combined.

    I love the wood one! One trick I have learned with my lab is to use a crib mattress! It’s cozy, lasts longer and doesn’t smell as quickly as fabric beds. An added bonus is that you can get sheets to cover it and it’s all washable 🙂
