Vintage Suitcase Dog Bed
Make a statement with your dog’s sleep zone
Gidget on her custom-created bed. (Yes, those are her matching designer dog boots on the carpet!)

When Brian Patrick Flynn needed a dog bed as an alternative to the couch for his generously shedding white rescue Terrier, Gidget, he couldn’t be satisfied with a mass-produced bed. He needed a piece of canine furniture that fit in his Mid-Century Modern home and reflected his eclectic tastes and skills as a home makeover TV show producer, interior designer and creator of Décor Demon.

 
The result is an eye-catching bit of upcycled wizardry, fresh purpose breathed into a classic form. I’m not saying this looks like an easy DIY project—finding an old suitcase that’s as slick as this one could be a challenge—but it’s certainly worthy.
