What materials did you use? Old side table with interior storage, paint (we used spray paint), fabric and batting for a cushion or store bough custion that fits inside. I spent about $20 total on this project ($8 for the side table, $5 spray paint and $7 for fabric). I used the stuffing from an old pillow that I was no longer using. Because this was to be a pet house, I wasn't too particular about the stuffing, as long as it was soft. I did put a zipper in the cushion so it could be washed.

What are you most proud of? It was SO easy. My husband failed to completely paint the inside, but that will be touched up when time permits. The most difficult part was making the cushion, which I would do differently if I had to do it over again.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Go for it! Whatever you do to it is bound to be an improvement on this very dated piece of furniture. We did not prep the wood in any way. We used spray paint, not knowing if it would look good, but if did. Just remember to paint the inside as thoroughly as the outside...haha.
