There are plenty of ways to add your dog’s name to a pallet bed and we like this idea of adding your dog’s initials using cut-out, painted wood pieces.

For those wanting a smaller bed that doesn’t take up as much wall space, you can use a flat pallet and leave the openings for storage underneath. Since there aren’t any sides, it’s a little more inconspicuous but just as cool and comfortable as the others. 

#6 – Full-Sized Frame

If your dog has their own room, feel free to make this giant bed. The back has cubbies for storage and you can custom design it to show off your dog’s favorite things. Hang leashes, store toys and place a comfortable bed and your pooch is good to go!
