A savvy couple have revealed how they upcycled their coffee table into a cosy pad for their dog for only £16.50.
The pair managed to pull off the bargain DIY project using items they already owned, as well as a few purchases from B&M – and it turned out brilliantly.
What started as an old unused wooden coffee table was completely transformed with the help of a lick of paint, bedding and hard-work .
She wrote: “Coffee table to dog pad!
“Our first little ‘upcycle’ project… total cost of £16.50 plus and old coffee table, pillow, a throw and a pup!”
The first thing they had to do was remove the legs sand the coffee table – which was originally purchased from B&M a while back.
Then they painted it a light grey colour, and, using a £1.50 tester pot of white paint and some stickers, also spelt Rodney’s name on the back of the bed.
All that was left was to flip it upside down and add a comfy cushion and throw blanket.
Since then the post has received 3,600 likes and 350 comments from people praising their savvy idea.
One person said: Oh look at him! I’ve got a pug may have to try something like this! xx”
Another person added: “I have the same table and we hardly use it. Definitely thinking of gifting our boy with a up cycled bed because he loves his little cosy spaces.”
A third also commented: “That’s so good, clever you to have thought of it.”
And a fourth admitted: “I chucked mine after I moved! Wished I kept it now.”
