How to repurpose an old chair into a dog bed

Owning a dog can be expensive, but pampering them doesn’t have to add to that expense! If you want a fabulous bed for your best mate, you only need to get an old, cheap chair…

By repurposing an old chair your dog can have a beautiful bed of its own!

It’s an easy repurposing/upcycling project, requiring only some quick modifications and refurbishing.

You can save or even avoid spending at all if you choose to use materials you already have at home. For example, you might have some scrap wood or plywood that you can use for the bed legs or headboard. You can also use your old bed sheet stuffed with old clothes as the mattress.

If your dog is always trying to share your bed (or in our case, the children’s beds), appeal to his or her territorial instinct and give them a fabulous bed of their own at a very low cost?

Be inspired by some great examples of old chairs turned into dog beds by viewing our gallery below. You can also learn how the featured dog bed was made by heading over to CupsThePups’ page. :)

Hmm… do you think cats will love this idea, too?
