My take on the Becca Truck

Submitted by jeverett1 on Sat, 05/11/2013 - 10:33

My wife and I have a 2 year old, 85lb, golden retriever named Lily. She has a tough time jumping up on our bed and has hurt herself on a few occasions. I was inspired to build her a step, but also wanted some storage. When I saw the Becca Trunk I knew I had to build it!

I used oak ply and solid oak for the trim, including some decorative leaf inscribed trim for the top and bottom. My wife and I picked out some outdoor furniture fabric that was stylish and would hold up to a big dog jumping on it. She used some firm padding and staple gunned the fabric to create a really neat and clean look (I am lost when it comes to that stuff, but she is a genius with scissors).

As soon as I saw Lily, I just knew you built it for her. Love that you added a a cushion top on the trunk. It's amazing how we take care of our fur Babies.
