Our poor dog, Milou, woke up yesterday morning with a sore back. I figured it out when he hopped onto our bed and gave the saddest cry I've ever heard.
We're making sure he gets the right medical care, but in the meantime, the vet said it wouldn't hurt to give him a set of pet stairs for getting onto our bed.
Space is always a challenge when we're thinking about adding a new piece of furniture, but I realized that a set of stairs would fit perfectly in the spot my bedside table now occupies.
If Rob could build a set of stairs with either drawers or a door and shelves inside, I could store all my bedside-table stuff inside.
Then, I'm thinking we could add a sconce to either the wall above our bed, or on our headboard itself, to give the dog an obstacle-free stairway.
Pinterest is loaded with ideas for these things, so here are some photos I found inspirational. Obviously, any photos showing full-size stairs would be recreated on a much smaller scale. I'll keep you posted on what Rob ends up making.
