All you need is a night stand/end table that fits perfectly over your doggie’s existing kennel. Using an interesting piece of fabric, you can sew a skirt for the night stand that covers up the kennel and serves as an entrance. Don’t feel like sewing? Find a fabric that you love to create a curtain of sorts in the same way.

2. Your old sweatshirt.
