Semi-DIY: Dog Beds!!

I have been really slacking on blogging lately. I need to get better. I was doing so well for a couple of weeks then everything just started to go crazy!!! We just have a lot going on in our lives right now. My parents came into town from Seattle this past weekend. So preparing for their visit was crazy.

With all the craziness a month ago I decided I wanted to get some dog beds made for our 3 furbabies. I never found anything I liked online or in the stores. And if I did they were at least $70 each (this was the cheapest) for large dog beds. This amount is INSANE when you have 3 dogs! It adds up quick! I wanted something that was soft because all 3 dogs LOVE soft cushy things. They were so uncomfortable sleeping on the laminate wood floors that they would go into our living room and sleep on the couches or on a pile of our clothes in the laundry. Such a sad sight to see.

So I went to the fabric store and found some super cute VERY SOFT zebra print (pink & blue) fabric for the top end and the bottom some cheap canvas (pink & blue) for the bottom end. We were going to just getting stuffing, but Mike decided to get our old king size memory foam mattress and cut it up so our dogs would have memory foam beds. The boys have a larger beds compared to Lucy, but hers is still pretty big. (Side Note: Probably think we are insane for cutting that memory foam bed, but it was so gross. We would never use that bed again. BLAH!)

Then I took the fabrics and memory foam to my very talented mother in law. And she created the MOST darling beds!! The first night the furbabies all 3 slept through the night with out waking me up! It was awesome! THEY LOVE LOVE them!!

  • My overall cost for 3 custom large memory foam dogs beds: $70
  • Retail cost for 3 large memory foam dog beds: $99/each ($297) ........and not as cute!
  • Saved: So much!!!! Priceless!!!
