What poodle or two wouldn't want to sleep in that cute little bed? I have two of them, Maddy and Bailey and they love their little beds, but this one may be the only one for awhile. It did take a while to finish it. In case you are wondering what it use to be in its former life, well it was an end table that was given to me. We turned it upside down, hubby cut off the two legs at the bottom and then I bought wooden pieces from Hobby Lobby to use for finials. The feet was in my stash, just plastic screw on legs that attached really easy. After all the priming, I was ready to paint! What a job, it really is hand painted so you will see some imperfections. So not tape and no measuring, it takes to long. lol. The headboard is a picture frame that I paid 2.00 at our local goodwill. On the back of the frame I painted over the little tabs that keeps the picture in, so I can change the pictures. The pillow in there now is temporary until I can find one that really fits and of course the right color. So, after a few hours of painting and sealing, it is finally ready to use. Of course, it will be a few days, poodles are very picky and until the paint smells go away, I don't think they will use it. Will I do another one! I think so, and have had requests already from some friends.
