Cats love to sleep, and they love suitcases – so it makes sense to make a bed out of a suitcase right?  Several weeks ago, I posted a picture of a really cute cat bed in a suitcase on Facebook…And you all seemed to really love this idea… well good news!  Since posting that picture – we found the owner of it.

Stefanie Schiada, owner of Brooklyn Limestone, in Brooklyn, New York is the brilliant designer who came up with the chic anc cheap idea to use a vintage suitcase (that cost her $3!) as a custom cat bed – and the results were amazing!  On her blog, you can find step-by-step instructions on how to make this bed.  Check out these cool pics of the bed and her cat, “Big Cat” – enjoying his new digs!

In the mood for a fun weekend project?  Be sure to check out the step-by-step guide that will walk you through exactly how Stefanie made this bed – with detailed and colorful pictures to guide you each step of the way.  While you’re on her site – browse around…there are a lot of other cool projects to see!

Thanks for the great idea, Stefanie!  I will be trying this out as soon as I find a suitcase as cute as the one you found!  … I doubt I’ll be so lucky to find one for $3!
