Being a dog bed maker myself, I'm tickled to see Lisa's project on Design Sponge. This style of heavy, cumbersome cabinetry is plentiful in the secondhand market and you better believe I scurry past it like it has The Plague. Lisa, on the otherhand, had vision.
Besides being a perfect photo, get a load of that bed! It's amazing what a little door removal and paint will do. Maybe that door was the problem.
