Turn a wine barrel into a dog bed


Dogs are not just pets – they’re family. If you are looking for a beautiful bed for your furry friend to sleep in, this might be for you!

DIY Wine Barrel Dog Bed - Barrel

This dog bed is made from a repurposed wine barrel. It’s strong and sturdy, perfect for your playful pet.

You can find commercially manufactured dog beds like this for $250 upwards, but you don’t have to spend that kind of money as you can build one yourself. Start looking for old wine barrels which you can get at a lower cost and then customize it for your little ‘baby’!

Since this only needs half a barrel, think about the things you can do with the other half!

Do you think the cats would love it, too? 🙂
