From doll bed to pet bed


Materials: Duktig doll bed

I was already making pet beds out of recycled wine crates and vintage suitcases, but someone asked me if I could make one from a a doll bed. Looking through Kijiji, I found someone who was giving away a Duktig doll bed and thought I could really do something cute with it. My client wanted a classic look, so iI added some «appliqués», painted the bed in a mix of green and blue acrylic paint, a few spots of black on the «appliqués», and then 3 coats of chalk paint in Old White. I distressed the paint in a few strategic places, and voilà!
