One of the many DIY-home-improvement-crafty sort of projects I took on before the move was this miraculous transformation, console tv to dog bed.
Inspired (as always) by the internets and enabled by the local Habitat Re-Store.
This beast of a television was only $4.00, what a steal!
Thankfully I had not one, but two very handy menfolk to take the guts out for me :)
Now this is the part I didn't take photos of, I know... terrible. But very soon after we started filling the garage with boxes for the truck. I really didn't need to do anything to the front or the inside, the top however, was a scratched up mess. I ended up sanding it down and painting it a lovely dandelion yellow.
I also attached a piece of wood across the back at the bottom, to better hold a pillow... and so her little behind wouldn't slide out :)
Here we are in the new house with a dog INSIDE the television:
It was amazing how quickly she adopted this bed. I pointed, tossed her toy in, and there we go! It's her spot, in the middle of everything but no one is tripping over her bed. All very contained and cute :)
