DIY Four-Poster Pet Bed

DIY Four-Poster Pet Bed 2

Here are the things you will need:

For the bed:

  • a smallish side/end table (the one used here is 18″x21″ and 19″ high).
  • 4 finials (the ones used here are ends for a curtain rod that were just the right size)
  • 4 smallish ball feet
  • a piece of crown molding cut to fit between two of the legs and form a headboard
  • small can paint (flat white is used here)
  • paint brush
  • wood glue
  • a paint pen for detailing
  • newspapers to paint on

For the cushion:

  • about a yard and a half of fabric (cut from a bolt at a fabric store – measures about 46″ across. A pretty black and white damask is used here)
  • a trash bag or paper to make a pattern
  • trim
  • a small zipper (also optional, the one here is 6 inches)
  • stuffing! (about half of a 32 oz bag)
  • pins
  • needle
  • thread
