When it’s hot outside, you just want to cool off and take it easy.
Made of scrap lumber and discounted chair pads; our pups, Pearl (rescue beagle), Douley and Phoebe Darling (Boston terrors) absolutely LOVE their new beds!
How did we make them?
Screw 2X2′ and 2X3′ lengths into a frame, shorter lengths to the inside
Screw the 2X2′ support brace in middle of frame, 2″ below lip
Screw the four 12″ feet inside frame, 2″ below lip. The feet act as addition bed supports
Cut plywood to fit inside frame, on top of feet and support brace – you may need to trim to make it fit
Drill drain holes in plywood bed, about 3″ apart
Add a patio chair pad, or bedding of choice. The 2″ drop below the lip helps keep the pad in place
- 2X6″ pressure treated board, cut in two 3′ lengths (sides)
- 2X6″ pressure treated board, cut in three 2′ lengths (sides, support brace)
- 4X4″ pressure treated post, cut in 12″ lengths (feet)
- 2X3′ pressure treated plywood (bed)
- outdoor patio chair pad
- drill, screws
Our pups are so spoiled; they refuse to chase the squirrels!
Have a good week! – – Joanne
