Up cycled entertainment center pet bed.

Let’s be honest, I got bored! I’ve been working on two blankets, one knit, one crochet and they’ve been eating up a ton of my time. Every so often I need a break from them and need to make something in a day.
I introduce: the built in pet bed!

It took only a couple of hours and has helped clean up some space on the floor. Here’s how I did it.
First thing was to remove the door from the stand. Next we need to take the glass out:

Hold onto those screws, we’ll use them again!
Once the glass is gone, it’s time to take out the frame. Here’s where it got a little fun! I used a rubber mallet and lightly hit them from the inside out. They popped out no issue.

I did use a little black paint to cover up the spots where they connected, blends right in now, you can’t even tell they were there. πŸ˜ƒ
While your paint is drying, sew up some curtains. Helpful tip: make your curtains a few inches longer than you need. Since you’ll be tying them back the extra length will be pulled up and just look better!
Now grab those saved screws, we’re going to attach our curtains using them!

I used the holes already there! My curtains are held up by three screws across the top and only two down the sides.
Reattach the door to the stand, use a piece of twine or ribbon to pull back the curtains, add a bed!
Hopefully you like, my three have been bouncing in and out of it for two days now. Come winter and cold, they’ll be fighting over who gets the squishy cave!
