    Default Dexter's new bed- homemade coolaroo

    Since I have a cash flow issue, I have been on the search for a cool a roo type bed for Dexter.

    Insert Pinterest! (I swear I use it more than google)

    So, for under $15 I made him one. I'm probably going to have to replace the fabric I used, but I think he likes it for now!!!

    That's really cool. He looks very comfy, and he seems to like it.

    I'm going to make another for my chihuahua that's about 1/4 the size. He's snoring up a storm now so I think he likes it. I was scared he was going to terrified of it-

    It look fantastic,great colour too,to get good quality dog bed you have to pay quite a bit,improvise and change the filling etc or make it yourself for the fraction of the cost I love home made stuff -looks really well made!
    Im waiting until neighbour come back so i can have a bit of s help as i got a few projects myself waiting ;-)

    WoW -- nice job. And he looks comfy and if he's snoring happily -- must like it.

    That looks great. We've been toying with the idea of trying to make some for the girls too but just haven't gotten that "toit" yet.

    Looks great.... couple of questions:
    Did you find the 3 way PVC corner fittings locally or did you have to order them?
    How did you attach it along the sides?
