DIY Dog Bed

I made this cute dog bed for my teacup Maltese named Percy.
I bought an old TV that was mounted in a stand.  I took out the TV.  Be careful doing this.
I used a paint to prime it.
This is what it looked like after priming it.
I painted it turquoise. I also used fabric to cover the back of the inside. I used the same fabric to cover the holes left behind in the front from taking out the speaker and button panel. I also used a cushion I bought from Hobby Lobby and covered it in a different pattern fabric to be used as a bed. Although the pictures don't show it I ended up buying white knobs for the bottom of the stand to replace the ugly knobs that used to be on it.
And of course Percy doesn't use the dog bed but I like the stand and it holds all his toys so it is still in my living room.
