I’ve got another easy project I’d like to share with everyone! When we brought Otis home, I already had a bowl with a stand from my old pup, Shelby. Jenny and I painted it and thought we were good; then we brought Murphy home 4 months later and ran into a bit of a problem. Murphy always wanted to eat and drink out of the big dogs bowl!
He would rebel by pouncing on his bowls until they spilled (water bowl only-he doesn’t waste his food and DEFINITELY doesn’t miss a meal). So, we learned that we would need to get them matching bowls and raised holders. I came up with using crates as the holders by just flipping them over.
Here are the ones I bought from Michaels.
What I did first was put each bowl upside down and traced the bowls out. Before cutting out the holes, I had to reinforce the crates from the bottom.
Here’s what they looked like after being cut.
This is after the first coat.
This is the finished project!
Next blog, I will show everyone how to hang a barn door INSIDE the house.
