Upholstered Dog Beds

Custom beds for each of my dogs

Cheap and easy to build dog beds. They have a modern/contemporary look. Can be built to match any existing furniture textures and colors.

Parts List

  • Scrap hardwood for legs
  • Few sheets of chip board (sold as shelves)
  • Some thin batting
  • Fabric/Linen Curtains
  • Black Paint
  • Iron Angles

To make the process easier I upholstered each piece first, then used the iron angle to attach them all together. Use clamps to keep everything at 90 degrees. To stiffen the frame I attached a solid sheet of 1/4 MDF to the base. This will prevent the mattress from sagging and add most of the structural support.
