During a research period for raised dog beds for outside summer lounging, I ran across a wood and canvas camping cot at a local thrift store. I bought the cot for a song. Though the two end pieces were missing, I knew I could make replacements in my woodworking shop. I got on the internet to see examples of the end pieces and surprisingly ran across examples of Army/camping cots used as camping chic interior decor. The prices for vintage cots are also surprisingly high. Here are a few of the images I discovered.
OK, so the search for raised dog beds will continue. I've decided not to use the chic cot for the hound beds, after all. ;o)
