  1. Remove the doors from the side table with a screwdriver or drill. If the table has a shelf inside, remove it now.
  2. Cover the holes of the screws. Either use wood putty applied with a putty knife or cut some wood trim to size to use and cover the holes and any indents with it. Adhere with wood glue. Let the putty or glue dry.
  3. Paint the side table inside and out to match your décor if desired. Allow to dry.
  4. Place into décor, add the pillow as a bed for your pup and enjoy!
