If you saw this in the $1 at the Thrift Store would you buy it?
Yeah, I know ... it's ugly. reaall ugly.
But I bought it anyways! I KNEW I could think of something!!
I mean, it was $1. and i'm a sucker for a sale!!
When I got home and opened it up - it was HUUUGEEE!!
and I had the perfect idea ... a dog bed - for our monster of a dog :)
So I found three of the ugliest pillows I could find ... yes, it's essential they be ugly! :)
and whipped up a quick slipcover for the pillows! (I wanted to be able to wash it!)
Then I decided to "personalize it".
Everyone knows the perfect PREPPY dog bed would have a "monogram" of sorts!
So I used black paint I already had mixed with Textile Medium!
You use 2 parts paint to 1 part Textile Medium.
(but check the instructions your may be different)! ;)
and then I got this ...
I just free-handed mine ... but if you have stencils or a cricut it could look so much better!
Then - Stuff the slipcover with your pillows and plop it in its new home!
How cute is that??
and it's Niles approved!! :)
p.s. this monstrous dog bed will not be staying in front of the fireplace! :) Don't worry!
and the best part? The whole project cost me less than $10!!!
Now go look for an old, cheap, ugly suitcase and make your pup a new bed on the cheap!
