Salty Dog Bed

Dresser drawer dog bed upcycle.
I found this dresser and thought it would make a great little project. Just painting it may only bring in a few dollars, however I could make three dog beds and make a few more dollars. YEP!
I painted in a distressed driftwood look .
Using a nail gun I attached vintage cork fishing floats for feet. These were a special gift from a fellow upcycler +Greg Hill .
Of course, I gave it an appropriate name.
A few fun details .
Some nautical fabric for a pillow case....and a pillow. Easy clean up and replaceable parts when the doggies wear it down. I sewed the pillow case but you can easily purchase one that suits your home decor style.
