Back in November, my husband constructed these beautiful and incredibly handy dog bed frames. Since switching to wood floors this summer, we started to notice that the beds would develop condensation on the underside, where the heat from the poodles met the cold from the floor. Having them raised-up on these bed frames does the trick and the beds, and our floor, stays dry!

He shaped the frames using plain-old 2x4's and painted them to match the color of our house trim (clove). I chose the canvas from our local craft store and together we made the fabric top, on top of which goes the doggie mattress. It works perfectly and each bed frame cost around $10 to make! They are a big hit and the poodles love having their beds elevated off the ground. D'Art, especially, was an early adopter of the new bed system.

Gone are the days of the great bed juggle. We're adjusting, but my outlook on those 'annoying' tasks has changed. Suddenly things seem more precious.
