Easily found on Craigslist or at thrift shops, these storage tables are great for hiding magazines or media. But Merrill had another idea. Check out how she transformed this side table into a stowaway pet bed.
I found this octagonal side table at a thrift store for $15. With some black paint and new knobs, it was good as new.
It has some wonderful storage, but instead of using it like normal people, I custom fit it with a plush pet bed. It allows my pets some privacy and a nice place to sleep but gives me the option of hiding it away when ever I have guests or functions at my house.
