Hope you have had a good week so far. I am going to show you a cheap and quick way to get a pet bed. For us more specifically, a cat bed. Yes, I know, my family is probably saying, "WHAT? You have cats?!?" Well, yes, actually, I do. I am normally not a cat person. If fact, I have been know to say in the past that I well,
I didn't do a before/after kind of thing here or a step by step tutorial but I think you can probably figure it out. This is what I did. I started with a good size box from Aldi. For you who don't know what Aldi is, it's a grocery store that stocks their items in boxes. There is no bagger so you bag your own groceries. I always use their empty boxes and fill them so I don't have to pay for my bags or bring my own. Anyway, I took the box and modge podged scrapbook paper on the outside and inside. I chose some that looked like barn wood. Then I got some fabric from Hobby Lobby and made a cushion or pillow for the bottom. Then, I took wood lathe strips and glued them around the inside for added strength and to give the cats something to sharpen their claws on. (I know, sounds painful for us but remember, I want them to be mousers.) Anyway, this is what it looked like after all that.
Then of course, I needed to personalize it for the little darlings. (Yes, that is said tongue in cheek.) ;)
So until next time...
Have a blessed day,
