My Country Farmhouse – Homemade Dog Bed DIY

Making a dog bed doesn’t have to be complicated.  I drew the outline of what I wanted the bed to look like, took measurements and headed out for the supplies.


Tools needed

  • Measuring tape
  • Screws
  • L brackets (1″)
  • Drill with bits
  • Staple gun
  • Paint roller and tray
  • Needle and thread
  • Scissors

The measurements will depend on the size of your dog of course. I was lucky enough to get the cut offs from Lowes at no cost. I simply paid a dollar per cut to get the sizes I needed to make the bed. So roughly $5.00.

I purchased paint and a roller at about $10.00. Laid out a piece of plastic and painted the wood before assembling.


At Fabricland I purchased some patterned cotton fabric. I got a meter which was more than enough for her tiny bed and the two pillows.  I also purchased a waterproof material and some cotton batting to make the bed comfy. In total the material cost $25.00. Using a staple gun I covered the base of the bed.


I then assembled all the pieces with L brackets and Screws. I sewed the two pillows by hand.

And voila!  A homemade dog bed that keeps Chaya off the floor.
