Dog Crate AND Bedside Table


Materials: GULLIVER Changing table in white and MATILDA Sheer curtains

It’s an age old story: Girl has dog, Girl loves dog, Girl doesn’t love dog crate. And of course, like many dog owners, I’d love to have something for my doggie to sleep in that is comfortable and aesthetically pleasing. But at the end of the day, I can’t quite bring myself to shell out the big bucks for furniture that doubles as a crate.

Enter the Gulliver changing table. The dimensions are a perfect fit for my dog crate (which sleeps dogs up to 40lbs). And, the open bars on the side allow for great air circulation and light. Plus, the best part is the hack is super simple (which is key for those of us who don’t have a woodworking background, own saws or still get confused when adding fractions).

Steps are as follows:

– Put Gulliver changing table together
– Omit the middle shelf
– Insert dog crate
– Add a small tension curtain rod and some fabric (I used a Matilda sheer curtain, cut it to size and iron hemmed them—No sewing here!)

And voilà! You’re now the proud owner of crate/bedside table that doesn’t make you cringe every time you go in your bedroom.
