8. Pet Feeder and Storage
Transform an ikea dresser into a handy pet food storage container and feeder. You can also keep the dry food in its bag so it doesn’t go stale, but if your pooch goes through a TON of pet food quickly, this could be a great idea. This uses an IKEA Rats.

9. Bunk Bed for Small Pets
I LOVE this idea. Whilst more suited to smaller pets, a bigger bunk bed could be made. If your pets are best of buds, why not make them bunkies?! This simple bunk bed is made from 2 Duktig Doll Beds.
