Form meets function (and budget) with this DIY dog bed project spotted on Scandinavian blog Brigg. The bed is fashioned from a children’s mattress, a single sheepskin, and a pair of leather belts. Here, the Remodelista editors rounded up the sources below:
Above: A single mattress is stacked and folded into three tiers, then topped with a mattress pad, sheepskin, and wrangled together with two leather belts.
Above R: The white Tejn Faux Sheepskin is $9.99 from US Ikea.
Above: Ikea’s Vyssa Slöa Crib Mattress has two different comfort surfaces: an eggbox-shaped surface for ventilation and pressure relief and a flat surface on the other side. Each side is covered in breathable jersey fabric and the entire mattress measures 52 inches long and 27 inches thick; $49.99.
Above: The Vyssa Tulta Mattress Pad is also made for a children’s crib (it measures 52 by 28 inches) and is $12.99 from Ikea.
