Pet Bed Makeover!


A couple of weeks ago, I had the pleasure of thrifting with Kathe with an E. We visited a Goodwill store I had never been to, and boy, were we impressed! It looked like a department store!





It even served coffee!



One of my finds was a pet bed. It was in good shape, and I swear it had never been used. I paid less than $4.









The entire bed had been lined with this fabric, but I knew I needed just a cushion which could be tossed in the wash every once in awhile.




Since it was going to be a bed for Abby,
I wanted it to be a bit more feminine.




I purchased the polka dot fabric at Jo-Ann's, and I already had the ribbon.






Thankfully, she loved it!



And, I had enough fabric left over to dress up the dogs!

This is a great thrifty project and it looks like kitty loves it too! I would love for you to come link up at my new weekly linky party Thrifty to Nifty Thursdays at A Jennuine Life.
