High Rise Dog Bed


Took an old wooden fence and recycled it into a tall dog bed. Initially I made this so my pup wouldn't block the AC/Heat vent, so the deck sat right above the vent. I have since moved it by our window and with its height was able to keep my soundbar sub woofer underneath it. This was the first time I have used a kreg jig, and I must say they are great! The bed was only sealed with Polycrylic satin finish to keep it looking old and weathered.

  • This is the cutest simplest dog bed that I have seen, but it fits the dog so easily, so easy for him to get in and out of.

    • All the dog beds I had looked at or designs I had seen were (in my opinion) ugly and more complicated than they needed to be. This one works perfect for us and solved a space problem we had in the room. My bulldog absolutely loves laying on it and watching all the elementary kids go by every afternoon.

  • This is such a great idea! My dog is constantly on our furniture (couches and beds). I think he likes to be up off the floor. After all it is his house - we are just lucky enough to live with him :) He loves to lay in front of the front door so he can see out into the neighborhood at what is going on. I think this would be a great idea to put in front of a window like you did so he can still see out but be off the floor. And hey - maybe it will keep him off the furniture too! Looks great and seems like an easy project even for a girl like me. I look forward to trying it!

    • You're pup will love it! Super simple and it can be done with any scrap wood (pallets or fencing) so its cheap too.
