Pinterest Challenge: Briefcase Cat Bed
Today I’m linking up with Young House Love, Bower Power, Centsational Girl, and Ten June for their Pinterest Challenge. They regularly challenge readers to take action and get on some of the projects they pin to Pinterest boards. We all need a little kick in the pants to stop pinning and start doing.
Pinterest is so full of ideas for repurposing old suitcases. My favorite idea, of course, is to use them for cat beds.
Camille Styles featured a round one:
Atomic Attic Etsy shop has several upcycled suitcases. I love this happy kitty stretching out on plaid flannel:
Odie now joins these pampered felines. He has a briefcase bed:
I didn’t actually make this project at all. My sister made it for my birthday in April.
She got a broken briefcase at a goodwill store, sanded the broken hinge side down, and fitted it with a pillow. She also rubbed it with cat nip so when the bed was first presented to Odie he went bananas. He loves this bed so much, he couldn’t help but photobomb me while I tried to get pictures for the blog.
I absolutely love that the bed is an old briefcase. It’s perfect for the office. In fact, I call it Odie’s “Business Bed” as that’s where he spends his time while his mama’s hard at work.
Check out the other projects linked up on the blogs listed above! People are so creative! If you are looking for a kick in the pants to get started on a DIY project, there’s plenty to go around.
