Repurpose Your Old TV Console – Make Your Doggie New Sleeping Quarters


All Dogs Do Go To Heaven When They Get A Bed Like This!

First you must find you an old TV console if you don’t have one yourself. You might find one for free on Craigslist or someone’s curb or for a few bucks at a second-hand shop or garage sale. Once you get it home, you will have to remove the back.

Depending on the condition of your console, you can elect to leave it alone, or sand it down and paint it to match the room where it will reside. You can either use a primer first and then paint a couple coats, or get a paint-and-primer-in-one. It’s probably best to ask the paint experts!
