The "Now You See It Now You Don't" Platform Bed

House Bella

Now I'll be the first person to admit I have a dog bed in almost every room of the house. When it comes to the bedroom our dogs want to sleep as close as possible and usually that means there's a dog bed in place of where a night stand should be. These fine folks have a better solution and bonus — it's diy-able on the cheap!

This bed is not only DIY, it's built with actual function in mind. Dog beds take up a ridiculous amount of space and in the bedroom, there's a good chance if you're in there for an afternoon snooze, your pooch is probably camped out right next to you instead of in their bed.

This bed has been built with a sliding bunk for their dog that is able to be pushed back in each morning so no one is tripping over it or it's out if guests peek their head in the door. Dog beds aren't exactly unsightly items and are a given if you have an animal in the home, but sometimes you're just tired of stepping over them!
