Just like your real kids, your fur babies deserve cool, comfortable places to lay their heads. Your pets are probably as low maintenance as they come. They require plenty of food, a loving family, and of course a super cool bed to call their very own. You can definitely head over to your local pet store and pick up something cute, use a fluffy pillow that you already have, or let your furry friend take up residence on their favorite piece of furniture. But if you want to go a more creative route, DIY is totally the way to go. The beds on this list range from 10 minute easy to a bit more complex. Whatever your style, there is something here that is perfect for your family and your pet.
1. Completely Custom DIY Pet Bed
Admittedly, this project is kind of a large one to undertake. While it doesn’t take multiple days or tons of long hours to complete, it does require some previous knowledge of woodwork and sewing. Everything from the bed frame to the large comfy pillow is handmade and completely customized. It is stylish enough to fit in perfectly with the rest of your home decor and comfy enough to make even the most discerning pet happy.

3. DIY Inside Pet House
This DIY pet house is a Scandinavian style structure that is just as just as fun and adorable as the pup that inhabits it. Much like the first one on this list, this project requires a bit more effort and a few wooden slats. Luckily, the use of any tools beyond a screwdriver and a saw are completely unnecessary. Give your furry pal a home of his own with this fun project.
