How to make a dog day bed out of a twin bed. Your pooch may sleep with you at night, but in the daytime while you’re at work, maybe he/she is looking for a comfy spot to look at a sunny window?
How to make a dog day bed
My friend Cathy and I repurposed a twin bed to make this dog day bed.
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. Therefore, we only had to add a board across the front.
It’s fairly easy to cut a portion of a bed in half using a jigsaw, circular saw, or even a handsaw.
Cathy made a pillow case to cover our pillow, so that it could be removed easily for washing. Of course, 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.
