Bejeweled Puppy Bed..Grandpa Made

About this design:

Actually I designed the bed inspired by beds of royalty with wooden canopies. Grandpa decided he would build it for our puppy Coco le Bebe. She turned 1's in the garage waiting for me to upholster. Its adorned with an iron cross with vintage filagree brooch.


Oak Hardwood, Iron, Vintage Filagree Brooch, and Grandpas' Hardwork ;)

    He’s already built me two work benches they are each 5′ wide and one is 30′ deep and the other is 27″ deep so I’m good on that :) He’s in the works of finishing a small bedroom into a beautiful room with a chandelier for my studio for my website so I am never going to ask him to build another thing until he’s so bored he asks me lol!!! I’m very spoiled! and so is the puppy :)

    What a beautiful bed for your adorable pup! You have a very talented grandpa! I had a grandfather who had his own handcrafted furniture business for many years. He stopped building furniture and started doing smaller wood pieces when he was in his mid 80s (he lived to be 101!).
    I was the proud recipient of a beautiful drop-leaf table and some lovely wooden lamps. Looks like your grandpa is a lot like my own was. Thanks so much for sharing and bringing back some wonderful memories! :D
