Introduction: Simple Rustic Pallet Pet Bed
this bed was made for my 15 year old cat who has trouble getting up on my bed but he wont use a or ordinary cat bed as he does not like the material hope you enjoy
Step 1: Materials
all you need for this project is 1 pallet and i found a piece of wood that is meant to support a roof and some varnish and wood glue and nails
Step 2: Step 1 the Frame
the frame was made just using a simple but joint and the blocks of wood off my pallet to support it
Step 3: Making a Overhang
so just so i was easy for my cat to get on the bed i added these to each side expat for the back were the headboard would go
Step 4: The Headboard
i used two smaller pieces of wood and one on top and for the middle i used the roof support for the centre cut up in a random fashion to make it look more rustic
Step 5: Sanding and Staining
i went over it with a 120 grit sand paper and rounded over the edges to stop my cat from getting splinters the i stained the base with a Jacobean oak and the head with a dark oak stain
Step 6: The Finished Product
the finished product looks good and my cat loves sleeping on it and it is easy for him to get on it
