Wine Crate Dog Bed

I LOVE WINE CRATES

There are so many things you can do with wine crates! I use them as storage bins around the house, under beds, closets, and in the laundry room. You can paint them, decorate them, put casters on them, you are only limited by your imagination. Somewhere (and I wish I could remember where) I saw someone take a wine crate and make a dog bed out of it. So this week I decided to make Lily, our Maltese, a new bed.


Here is Lily's new bed! Yes she uses a stand in, she is a very busy puppy you know.





Here is the crate and materials I used. For under $20.00 I made her the bed.

Wine Crate $5.00 from the wine store

Finials $3.50 from Lowe's

Wood Decoration $5.00 from Lowe's

Spray Paint $4.00 from Lowe's

Two shabby chic napkins I already had, along with scrap fabric and stuffing.









This is the completed Box Pillow for the inside of the bed.




Other uses for the crates if you don't have a dog....
to hold magazines, blankets, toys, scrapbooking supplies.
It could even hold produce or bread in the kitchen.
Okay enough already, you get the point!




Another picture of "Lily" and her new bed.

Hope you all had a wonderful Earth Day today and practiced the 3 R's....

Clearly I need to hit the wine store more often to pick up a few of these crates - I just LOVE them! Great project.
