Many of you know I love cats. Adore. Love. Love. I have four sweet bundles of fur that purr and love and that to me is a sweet thing. I have purchased a few cat beds that are located in various places around the house. Plain cat beds that do the job and provide a sweet nesting place but the crafty girl in me was looking to create something different. Something fun and unexpected. I did a quick search on Etsy for catbeds and came across the inspiration I was looking for. A vintage suitcase cat bed.
TaDa! Here she is!
I picked up an old suitcase at the Goodwill for $10. I love everything about it. The metal buckles, the luggage tag, and the blue silk lining inside. Perfect!
I purchased wooden legs, leg mounts and screws at Home Depot.
My husband was a big help here. We placed each mount on the bottom of suitcase on all four corners and drilled right through.
I spray painted the legs a Nickel color. I love the light sheen!
A quick clean up with a Magic Eraser. Genius cleaning tool!
A few craft supplies to decorate their new pad!
It’s all good. ~ Donna
