Turning a flea market find into my dog's bed

Guest post written by Lisa Metcaff

I'm always browsing the local flea markets. It's one of my favorite things to do because I'm super crafty and love to find new uses for a lot of different things. Well, I had recently seen a blog post talking about how to make a dog bed out of a vintage suitcase. I recently adopted a dog from a local animal shelter, so I thought that it would be a great idea to look for an old suitcase that I could use to make him a little dog bed.
I even already had a fabric picked out at my favorite fabric store for it too! When I came across the directions for it online, I also ran across the site and after I showed it to my husband we decided to change over our home internet service to that provider.I finally tracked down the perfect sized suitcase for the bed and made the DIY suitcase dog bed. It was pretty easy in comparison to other projects that I've made in the past and it goes so well with all of my other bedroom dŽcor!
