Yep! It’s another dog DIY for us. This time, we’re making a super groovy dog bed so Roadie can have a place to chill in JZ’s office when she’s working.

This was *supposed* to be for the living room, so we made it to fit a dog mattress we already had; however, things changed and we decided to move it to the office. This meant that JZ had to bust out the sewing machine and make a custom mattress cover with a zipper (so it could be removed and washed).

Making this was so fun, but even better was having Roadie check it out at the end. Be sure to check out the hilarity of us incentivizing him to get on it.

Check out the video below to see how we made it:
