This idea was an easy piece to do. Since Sadie is such a large dog, a purchased pet bed is quite expensive. Instead, we made our own! We created this pallet dog bed using about two pallets. We left one pallet intact and cut strips to fill in the gaps. Next, we added the three side walls. Then we added legs to it to raise it up off the ground. It had to be sturdy to support a 100-pound Rottweiler. We used screws and brad nails to assemble it. Everything was sanded, stained and sealed with three to four coats of polyurethane. I also woodburned a plaque with her name and decorative touches for the front of the bed.

This Raised Pallet Dog Bed can accommodate a large size dog.
Stain applied and sealed. It looks pretty good!
Raised Pallet Dog Bed has a custom pallet plaque that I woodburned and customized.
I stained the plaque differently so it would stand out.
Raised Pallet Dog Bed is designed to fit the dog bed I have.
Here is my project, finished and in place, and it fits the store-bought cushion I have perfectly.
I added side rails that I mitered the corners in my Raised Pallet Dog Bed
Here are the details of the side rails.
We added legs to raise the pet bed for our taller dog.
The dog bed is upon feet to make it more comfortable for a taller dog.
The bed is complete; but it still needs legs installed on this Raised Pallet Dog Bed.
Here is the completed bed portion. I still need to install the legs at this point.
