    You'll have to patch with wood filler and sand to repair chew marks. Prime then paint.

    You'll need to buy a bed frame for the bed and just screw on the headboard and ditch the footboard.

    To paint and distress, you'll have to decide if pink is the color to show thru your distressing. At the moment you can paint white but when you wipe or sand to distress the pink will show thru. If you want another color, you'll have to completely paint one color pretty heavy to cover the pink, then paint white and distress. Afterwards put a coat of poly over the whole thing.

  • Sand the surface to remove all the rough areas. Add wood filler and sand smooth. Add a primer and paint.

    I saw this on Pinterest! Look it up! When old furniture is missing a piece on one side they make a mold from the good side using a hot glue gun. Turns out great and isn’t too difficult.

    Sand, distress the other side to match, paint in tones to conceal the damage and honor the life of the piece and the dog! I’ve gotten over the perfect finish and have learned to embrace the imperfect and move on with your life. Life is too short to worry about the perfect...embrace the imperfect is my motto...
