“watch out pooch, dog beds are not just for the dogs!”
Even if you don’t have a four legged best friend, you have to admit that there are some cute dog beds popping up these days at places like Target and even Costco. They come in a variety of fabrics and patterns and are very reasonably priced considering the massive size of the “throw pillow”. That’s right, when you really stop to think about it, a dog bed is nothing but a huge throw pillow. Which got me thinking… for those with a daybed or who have an old sofa that needs a little oomph, why not add/replace the large back pillows with large dog beds?! An easy, super budget friendly solution!
Not convinced? I recently did a mini-make-over in my own master bedroom. I had a daybed from West Elm, which I had bought for the sitting room at our last house. In this house, I placed it in the bedroom but wanted to put it up against the wall under the TV and have it be more of a reading, lounging sofa, but still be used as a “mommmm I’m sick/had a bad dream” emergency bed. Throw pillows are fine… but for real comfort you need an actual proper padded back. I looked into sewing and DIY-ing something -until I was browsing a HomeSense store (also known as HomeGoods depending on where you live) and it hit me: DOG BEDS!!! The right size and cheaper than anything I could make. Not to mention, available in all sorts of cute prints and colors.
Are you sold? Would you use a dog bed as a throw pillow? Let me know what you think!
