Upcycled Shag Rug Dog Bed!

 

Old 2X4 shag rug + old dog + 15 minutes = IDEA!


I was lucky enough this rug happened to have a separate layer of fabric already attached to the bottom.  However, this idea would work with any shag rug and a piece of fabric sewn to the bottom with a sturdy sewing machine.  


This rug had stitched columns, which I like because it keeps the stuffing spread out evenly.  I cut a slit in the middle of each column and stuffed it with fiberfill I ripped out of two ugly old pillows (maximizing my upcycling !



Then I hand-stitched the slits closed.  


Not bad for an old rug, aye?


Success!!!

Oh my gosh this is just the cutest thing! I love how creative you are (and I'm sure your dogs love it too!). I would never have thought that an old rug could be something so cute and so useful for your favorite pups! I'm definitely inspired... keep the ideas coming! Thanks!

I love how clever and yet simple this is. I now know what to make my friends with pets for gifts.

Your dogs will surely sleep on the new rug for long hours now since it's very comfortable for them.

I have seen a rug similar to this one in a dog boarding Long Island. My husky slept on it like a baby.

That's a very nice Dog Bed. My Schnauzer will surely love to stay on that kind of rug bed. I think I should get him one. I will try to visit the Pet Supplies Chicago and see if it's available.
