I needed something in my grandkids playroom that my small dogs could easily climb up on to sit and look out the window to the street. Came up with this idea that took zero carpentry skills and works perfectly.
I just purchased two Trofast frames and the bins that fit inside, pushed them together and covered the “steps” with three Toftbo bath mats. It works perfectly! The dogs can easily climb to the top to lay down, the bins hold lots of toys, and the bath mats are colorful and fun.
