We reinvented an old flea market dresser, turning it into a combination bedside table and pet bed. To do so, we cut out the bottom two drawers, relined the inset with beadboard, then painted the entire unit a fun color. Finally we added an inviting cushion, making it a perfect hideaway for a small dog or cat.
Cut a piece of plywood to size 3/4" shorter in length and width than interior dimensions, then place along bottom. This smaller sizing will allow proper wiggle room for installing plywood reinforcement.
If you don't have a circular saw to cut the plywood, the home improvement store will most likely cut it to size for you at a small charge.
Use a circular saw to cut a 4' x 8' sheet of beadboard to the proper height and width of interior. Use sandpaper or sanding block to remove rough spots of beadboard. Hold each strip of beadboard into place, then secure with a nail gun or screws.
