    Sometimes 'good' ideas really are good!

    My dogs have an old bed in my sun porch that has seen much better days. I decided to make them a new one. I had this old coffee table that was about to go out in the trash when I this idea....How could I use an old coffee table, a baby bed mattress, and a quilt to make a bed for my fur babies? Here's what I came up with.

    What a clever idea you came up with and the quilt is beautiful. Your babies are very lucky to have you to take care of them.

    Your doggies are very lucky indeed! I would venture to "sleep" on that bed myself, due to the lovely quilt you used!! ...What a great idea, too!!

    Clever of you. Of course we have to pamper our babies. Right now mine is asleep on 'my' bed.
    Live and let live!

    Well Sister, you've done it again. Once you get an idea, you make it happen. I know the dogs will be quite happy with their bed. You know since I don't have a dog, maybe you could quilt me one.

    Haha great! Does your dog like to be higher up? I thought you were going to take the legs off, flip it over, and put the mattress in there.
