DIY Modern Pet Bed

Monday, May 12th, 2014

Today is the day we’re kicking off the Summer “Get It, Got It, Go” Blog Hop with projects completed with ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tape and supplies purchased at The Home Depot. I’m excited about this campaign, there will be three dozen bloggers contributing ideas and I’ll be sharing them throughout the summer!

I’m starting the event with this modern pet bed we built for our good friends, they have the cutest pair of dachshunds so we built a bed for them to lounge outdoors during the day, but the bed can also be used indoors too. I painted the base a bright orange and topped it off with a striped cushion in a durable outdoor fabric.

The bed is elevated with tapered metal legs for easy cleaning underneath and the bright color is so fun for summer! This little pup is waiting for his treat…

To recreate a similar version here’s what you’ll need!

Supplies from Home Depot: 5/8” plywood sheet cut to size of base; ¾” x 5.5” poplar planks for sides; 1½” x 4’ poplar hobby boards for decorative trim; ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tape, 1¼” wood screws, primer & exterior paint (if using outdoors). 

This elevated pet bed is project you can build in an afternoon, it took us 2 hours from start to finish not including the painting process. I had the plywood base cut at Home Depot, then we attached the planks after we trimmed them to fit with our miter saw at home. The dimensions I worked with were 28” x 38” based on the pet bed cushion I picked up at Petco, here’s the basic box we built.

ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tape & Home Depot “Get It, Got It, Go” Summer Blog Hop

Thursday, May 8th, 2014

Hello everyone! Today I’m excited to announce a second round of the fabulous DIY event I hosted last year in partnership with ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tape and The Home Depot. You’ll recall last year two dozen bloggers got creative with ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tape and products from The Home Depot and I showcased all of the projects in the “Ready, Set, Paint” Blog Hop of 2013.

Well great news, the event is back and this summer there will be even more projects to share. This summer’s “Get It, Got It, Go” Blog Hop will include three dozen bloggers and their creative DIY projects and I’ll be hosting links to all the projects right here – the projects featured will help inspire this year’s painting season!

I’ve been using ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tape for years, it’s my go to for all things paint related when I need to tape off drawers for furniture makeovers or lines for painting stripes. For me, it won’t peel up any layers of paint underneath and still seals for protection or perfect lines, I even use it around the house to help evenly hang artwork!
