Interior designer Brian Patrick Flynn loves his rescue terrier Gidget, but not so much the mounds of shedding hair she leaves behind on his velvet upholstery.

Store-bought dog beds can easily reach ludicrous prices, so when it came to finding one that fit his beautifully curated, Mid-Century home -- yet was also budget-friendly -- Brian went the DIY route.
In spectacular fashion, he upcycled a vintage suitcase (pictured, left) to make a stylish and functional piece of canine furniture (pictured, right, as enjoyed by Gidget). Now this pampered pooch is lounging in high style -- and keeping her grubby paws off of the sofa!
