One of the advantages of doing things yourself is the ability to customize furnishings to fit your home. That's what we recently did when we built this footstool to replace a large coffee table at Steph's house.
Steph adopted a second greyhound, which meant having a second dog bed in the living room. With the two beds and the large coffee table there just wasn't enough room. Steph designed a heavy base ottoman that would better fit the space.
Take a look at her customized piece of furniture.
We were able to repurpose the old coffee table that was in this space. We set it upright, added wheels for portability and it now functions as a cabinet to house Steph's Lego instruction manuals!
What have you customized for your home? Do you have a couch puppy?
By the way, Mac in the purple collar has NEVER tried to get on the couch. It's interesting how these two greyhounds have such different personalities!
