My friend Cathy and I repurposed a twin bed to make this dog bed. We call it a day bed because we assume that most of you cuddle up with your canine friends at night.
There were two pieces to this bed. We left one piece whole, and the other piece we cut in half, and used those two pieces as the sides. We only had to add a board across the front.
With the seat removed, you can see how we constructed this day bed. We use wood glue and drywall screws for a good secure fit.
Cathy made a pillow case to cover our pillow, so that it could be removed easily for washing. The pound puppy is just a prop. Cathy’s son and daughter in law have this in their living room, in front of their picture window so their very old “Midnight” can look out the window.
