Fit For Royalty

By Jean at Mockingbirds Kottage in Queensbury, NY.

What do you get when you put an end table and a vintage mirror frame togather? A fun, whimsical, and “oh so cute” dog bed! You won’t find a “pea” under this bed. Absolutely fit for royalty, this comfy 4 poster bed will make any 4 legged or 2 legged friend envious. 

I knew when I picked up this end table with a missing drawer, that it was going to make a fabulous, fun, repurposed to a new use project! After flipping it over and adding the top of a mirror frame as the head board, it started to take on it’s new life as a dog bed! All painted and sealed with General Finishes products, all it required was the finishing touches of 4 drawer pulls as post finials. 

I hope you enjoy viewing this project as much as it was for me to create.
