We turned an old flea-market dresser into a combination bedside table and pet bed. To make it, we cut out the bottom two drawers and relined them with beadboard, then coated the entire piece in a fun color. A fluffy cushion in the bottom makes it a welcoming retreat.
Stylish and Multifunctional
Octagon tables were all the rage 40 years ago; today you can find them secondhand for next to nothing. We updated this one by removing the door and giving the whole piece a fresh coat of paint. Then we made it pet friendly by lining the inside with fabric and adding an inviting cushion.
Modern End Table
This stylish end table with its peek-a-boo sides adds a perfect mod accent and serves a dual purpose as an end table and raised perch for lounging.
Drawer Turned Bed
This simple project requires very little power-tool skills. New furniture feet were screwed onto the base of an old dresser drawer, then the entire piece was painted. Wood letters were adhered to the front to identify the new owner.
This portable pet carrier is easy to make and doesn’t cost a lot. The mesh top is removable so the basket can be used for an outing or at home as a pet bed.
To make this comfy chair, the legs were cut off an old office chair. Furniture pads were added to the bottom to restabilize it. Then the entire chair was covered in a soft blanket and felt letters.
